These are a hands-on way to practice identifying, reading, and using contractions. It is a fun way to practice your new vocabulary that will help further new simple spelling skills. The art themed cards are colorful, portable, and beautiful. They can be used as enrichment, practice, used as a game, or in a literature center. They should be printed on card-stock and laminated but can be used as a matching-pasting activity to work on additional skills. I have included blank cards and a list of commonly used contractions along with the completed flashcards.
