Shorten up those caterpillars and turn them into contractions. Each caterpillar body has two words on it. Cut apart the body on the dotted lines. Take out the middle part, and paste the rest of the body next to the caterpillar head. Glue on an apostrophe and you've made a contract-a-pillar! Kids love this artistic way of teaching contractions. Contractions are arranged by 'families' (contractions made with not or will, for example). There are seven pages of contraction families. Great preparation for Contraction Attack
