For this center activity, students are to sort out words under the correct second part of the contraction. There are 24 cards with the first part of the contraction, and 4 sorting mats with the second part of the contraction (n't, 's, 've, and 'll). Once the students have sorted all the cards, they are to write the contractions correctly on their answer sheet.
This center includes:
- an instruction card
- a set of 4 smaller instruction cards that will fit on the front of the small plastic containers to store the pieces
- 4 sorting mats
- a sheet with 24 word cards
- a worksheet for them to record their answers
- color AND black/white versions of all the materials
