This resource has 2 separate hands-on center activities as well as a student workbook to use as enrichment while learning about contractions in the classroom:
1) The "Contraction Acorn Hunt" - students match words with their corresponding contractions on acorn tops and bottoms. After all acorns have been matched up, students record their findings on their recording log, included in the "Contraction Discoveries Book."
2) The "Contraction Acorn Stack" - students stack words and contractions to create contraction equations which are recorded onto their recording logs, included in the "Contraction Discoveries Book."
3) "My Contractions Discoveries Book" - includes the recording logs to be used with the "Contraction Acorn Hunt" and "Contraction Acorn Stack" activities as well as a cut and paste activity sheet, contraction matching worksheet, and contraction word web worksheet. The booklet's cover page has matching squirrel and acorn graphics that students can use as a coloring page.
Additionally, you will receive full teacher set-up instructions, center signage, student instruction signs with photo examples, answer keys for the worksheets, and additional photo examples of the activities shown set-up.
All pages are centered around adorable squirrel and acorn graphics that work especially nice in fall/autumn, but would be great for any time of year.
