Product Description
When teaching contractions to my students I describe the process of putting the two words together to make a contraction as “surgery”. The students “cut out” the extra letters and use a “Band-Aid” (apostrophe) to hold the words together.

This Product Includes:
-51 Contraction Write and Wipe Cards
-51 Answer Cards
-Recording Sheet
-Scavenger Hunt Sheet

Laminate the Write and Wipe and Answer Cards separately or make the cards double sided by folding the Write and Wipe Card and Answer Card in ½ before laminating.

After laminating the cards your students can write their answers on the Write and Wipe cards and then check their work on the Answer side. Students can then record their answer on the Contraction Surgery Recording Page or hide the cards around the room for a Contraction Scavenger Hunt.
