How to play:
Word sort – Sort the words by contractions patterns.
Baking Up Contractions – Draw a card. If you correctly turn the words into a contraction or turn the contractions into the original words, then you spin to see how far you go.
Contraction Match – Use the cards from the word sort and the Baking Up Contractions Board Game. Students flip over two cards. If they are a match, then students keep the cards. If they are not a match, then they turn the card back over.
Roll A Word - Roll the die. Read the first word under the die number. Mark out the word once you read the word. Roll the die again. Read the next word under each die that is not marked out. When you have read all the words you win!
Spin A Word: Students draw a card and spin the spinner. If Students can correctly create a contraction, then they get to keep the card. If they cannot correctly create a contraction, then they put the word card on the bottom of the pile.
