Our dictado for the last two weeks has been focusing on contractions, and I wanted to do something fun and craftsy with my students. I had seen similar projects, but of course I adapted it so that I wouldn't have to print anything and that it would be slightly more educational and still fit within the time frame of an hour. I have the complete instructions for the teacher, examples of each step, step-by-step student instructions, and the fun bulletin board we made from it in this set. As always, 10% of my profits go to DonorsChoose.org and an additional 10% go to Food for the Poor, two great charities that are helping make the world a better place. Enjoy!
