This is a fun pirate activity to practice contractions! Understanding and creating contractions is a Common Core Standard for 2nd grade but should be introduced in 1st grade. Your students will love this hands-on activity during literacy workstations, independent practice, small group instruction, or with a partner. This packet includes 2 workmats (There are 2 workmats on 1 page. Print and then cut each page in half), 1 Recording Sheet, 1 page of blank treasure chests (so you can write additional contraction words) and 9 pages of contraction words on treasure chests (total of 18 words).
I recommend printing the workmats on cardstock, cutting the page in half, and laminating for durability. Print the words on cardstock or heavy paper, cut, and laminate. Then, this activity is ready for your students to use! The recording sheet will keep your students accountable of actually creating the correct contraction words.
Here are the words that are included in this packet:
Use an apostrophe to form contractions and frequently occurring possessives.
