I must confess that I am not a trained teacher first if all so I am sorry for sneaking in. I am however a father that does help with homework and such and take a very active role in my son and daughters education. Recently I helped my son with a compound word excersise and two of our answers came back wrong and was wondering if anyone could shed light as to why. The two words in question are Sunday and noticeable. These were marked as not being compound. I dont understand why they aren't since Sunday Sun-day both seem to stand on their own and noticeable notice-able seem to as well. I can even use them all in a sentence. So why does anyone think these might have been marked wrong? Any help would be great. Oh and the reason I'm not asking the teacher direct is she just went out on maternity leave. Thanks in advance and please don't flog me too much for "sneaking in".
