Contraction Lions is a card game with 36 word contraction cards (female lion cards) (e.g. where's) and 36 two word cards (male lion cards) (e.g. where is). Three sets of instructions are given, to be played with the same set of cards: Lion Snap, Lion Memory and Go Lions (a variation on Go Fish). Each game is easily taught and has simple rules. The resource contains 9 pages.
This activity is a card game to reinforce the use of word contractions. Repeated opportunities to play with words, in engaging activities, allows learners to become familiar with the look and sound of each word, therefore strengthening both spelling and reading skills.
