Hooray . . . I finished it folks! This contraction pack has been rollin’ around in my crowded brain for what seems like an eternity. However, yesterday it all came together! I give you . . . Contractions: As Easy as Pumpkin Pie. (Oh, and a freebie too! It’s hiding down there!!)
My kiddos have been saying “easy as pie” lately in class – something a teacher loves to hear, because (1) you taught the standard oh so well and your kids are feeling successful (2) you can raise the bar again! So, I parlayed this concept into a packet with a little dash of holiday flavor.
This collection has a contraction introduction (pocket chart sort), Contraction Rap by Ron Brown’s Intelli-Tunes, center games, and a number of independent activities/worksheets.
|You can have the kids use the optional labels or hand write the contractions.
There is just something about that “whipped cream” that cracks the kids up.
Well, I couldn’t have you go through all of that without a little freebie, now could I??!! NOPE! And, It has been much too long since I offered a little goodie up! So, below you will find a selection from my pack – My Little Book of Contractions. It’s pretty self-explanatory. They write a contraction on the top line, write a sentence using that contraction, and draw a corresponding picture. My writing center for at least two days this week . . . CHECK!
