Product Description
The fractions included are the "negating a verb" contractions. The "not" contractions only. There are 17 total "not" contractions.

isn't, aren't, wasn't, weren't, haven't, hasn't, hadn't, won't, wouldn't, don't, doesn't, didn't, can't, couldn't, shouldn't, mightn't, mustn't

I like to use these in a fun game. We perform surgery on the two words and contract (fix the broken bones). I hand out a bag to each student with a surgeon mask, band-aids, and plastic gloves. We add a band-aid (with an apostrophe on it). The kids love, love, love this activity! I glue a picture of a cartoon doctor on a giant poster board, and as the student's bring up their patients (words) I check them. If they performed surgery correctly, they can put their name on the bone and I add it to the poster board. The poster board works as an anchor chart as well.

Later, I print out the contractions pages for use in a word work station so they can get so time to match up the words (bones), and become more familiar with the contractions.

I have included a blank page for adding your own words. All 7 pages are in .jpeg format.

Thank you and I hope your day is filled with sunshine!!!
