"BUMP!" is a fun way for your students to practice contractions. It allows for repeated exposure to the words you want your children to recognize automatically, but in an engaging and kinesthetic way that is sometimes lost in traditional flash-card practice.
This set includes a set of primary contractions. Instead of writing the words on paper flash cards, this download presents the words electronically, in a slide show. Randomly placed throughout the sight words are the words BUMP, STOMP, CLAP, SNAP, and WIGGLE. Your students' attention will be focused on reading the contractions as they anticipate seeing the fun action words pop up. When they see an action word, they say the word and do the action. A picture clue has been included with each action word to help support emergent readers.
If you use computers during center time, you can load the slide show onto student computers to allow for independent or partner practice.
