3. WATER
The number of letters for the clue #3 should be five, not four.
Waterfall, waterfowl, watermark, watershed, waterside, and waterways are words that demonstrate that the five-letter WATER can prefix each FALL, FOWL, MARK, SHED, SIDE and WAYS.  I did not find a four-letter solution.

7. NIGHT
Night school is not an open compound word, thus, NIGHT does not really prefix SCHOOL. (Though, it is used as a closed compound word in the English-language manga [comic book/illustrated novel] written and illustrated by Svetlana Chmakova where supernatural beings go to school. But I think this does not really qualify it as a "valid" word.)
