Included in this 29 page packet is four spelling games that focus on contractions using will and not.
The first game is a simple activity that would best work with white boards. Students draw cards and a partner tells them the word to draw and then the partner checks their work. Simple but engaging due to those white boards!
The second game is a Kaboom! game that has students identify the two words that make up the contraction.
The third game is a concentration game matching the contraction to the words that make up the contraction. There is a recording sheet to practice spelling and writing the contractions.
The fourth game is a Band Aid Contraction activity. Students build the two words and then use a band aid clip art picture as the apostrophe to knock out the letters. There is a recording sheet for this activity as well.
