This product contains 24 cards (12 pairs). Students read the sentence and try to find the matching contraction.

It comes in two formats: print and digital. Choose the format that is best for your students!

  1. Teachers who choose the traditional print format will print a set of cards for each small group. Students will cut apart the cards, turn them facedown, and then take turns trying to uncover matches. When all of the cards have been matched, students count their cards to determine the winner.
  2. The newer digital format is an Easel Activity. It is set up to be a game that students can play individually or with a partner. Students are presented with a sentence that contains an underlined contraction, and they must uncover the card that correctly lists the contraction as two separate words.
