Want to make your guided reading groups more fun or get the kids excited about practicing their contractions? Why not go classic and play Slap Jack?
Included in this set are 54 contraction and word cards meanings. I divide the sets and play multiple days. I let the kids name the owl and we play Slap _____ (name decision). They love to play! To win the card if they slap it, I make my students say either what letters are missing or what words make up the contractions.
After we've played the sets, I placed the cards in a few pencil pouches for a literacy center that can be used throughout the year.
