A contractions game with a Christmas theme. This game can be played with 2-4 players. The game boards are in color and black and white. The object of the game is to be the first person to cover all the letters and correctly read the contractions. There are 2 versions of play.
I made this because so many of my students write a contraction as 'nt instead of n't. I thought with a concentration of looking at the words they would see how the words were spelled. Once the students covered their whole board, they don't "win" until they can give the two words which make up the contraction. I have used this in my guided reading groups and they keep begging to play it again. I like to have them draw a playing piece at one time to keep everyone involved in the game.
