Christmas Task Cards: Working with Contractions
This is a great way to integrate the holidays with your literacy workshop or centers. It also works great for a holiday game of Scoot.
The task cards in this product are aligned with the second grade CCSS.ELA-Literacy.L.2.2c, but they offer an excellent activity for higher grades to maintain the skill of using contractions.
There are two types of task cards included. The students will be given two words and asked to write a contraction to replace the words or a contraction will be presented and students will be directed to write the two words the contraction can replace.
This activity can be extended by directing students to write a sentence for each contraction or group of words.
This packet includes 36 colorful holiday task cards. Along with a recording sheet, an answer key has been provided to allow students to check their own work. A plain sheet of paper may be used to record students’ work.
