Answers:I found a couple of sites that might help you. I also found this poem that has compound words... I d Like To Be A Butterfly by Charles Ghigna I'd like to be a butterfly So beautiful and free, Flying high into the sky Above each cloud and tree. I'd like to be a grasshopper . And bounce from place to place, But every time I try to jump, I fall flat on my face. I'd like to be a spider And spin instead of crawl, But I've no silk to make a web, And I've no legs at all. I'd like to be silver snake, Handsome, long and lean, But every time I try to stretch, I'm still too short and green. I'd like to race my friend the worm And finally be a winner, But both of us just might become A bluebird's two-course dinner. I'd like to be so many things, A hero and a thriller, I'd like to be a butterfly But I'm just a caterpillar.

Answers:I use a hand game to teach my second graders about compound words, and they love it. I learned it at a conference with Jonette Downing: Teach it like this the first time: Double, double This, this, Double, double That, that Double this Double that Double, Double This, that Substitute the word "this" for the 1st word from the compound and "that" for the second word. When you say "double" you use closed fists to hit against your partner's closed fists, when you say "this" you hit your palms together, and when you say "that" you hit the backs of your hands together.
