Go Fish for Contractions is played just like the traditional "Go Fish" game. In this game, students ask for the opposite of a card that they already have. For example, if a student has "will not", he/she must ask for "won't". If no one has that card, the player must pick a card from the deck. The player with the most pairs at the end wins!
This game includes a recording sheet and a sentence writing sheet.

Love it! Thank you, thank you! Just wanted to add one little thing I noticed. The font you used is very cute but I thought when it came to I'll and I'm the apostrophe combined with the font choice made it hard to decipher for my kids. But it is a very nice game. Thanks for posting.

Great for a center game. Thank you for an interesting game on an important topic.
Valerie, thank you for posting this excellent quality activity! I am a student teacher in a grade 2 classroom and we're working on contractions. I have been thinking of doing something like this in our centers but simply have NOT had the time to make it up, THANK YOU!

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS:
I love the smiley sentences, but have HS students! One in particular has dysgraphia, so this would be especially helpful for him (with the finger space idea) but this is too childish to use in the classroom. Is there any way to modify this into a HS version, not just for him, but for all my "poor writers"?
