These contractions puzzles are great for learning centers. Students will match the contraction with the two words that make the contraction to complete an apple. An easy to print student response sheet is included. After your students complete the puzzles, they can use their new skills to match compounds and build compounds using the two follow up worksheets. The cut and paste worksheet is for students who need more support. The spin and build worksheet is for students who are ready to recognize whether a combination makes a contraction and can apply the skill of removing the necessary letters and adding an apostrophe.

I recommend printing them in color and laminating them for repeated practice in small groups or learning centers. The title page can be stapled to a pocket folder and the pieces stored inside for an easy take it to your seat activity.
The B&W version can be used in two ways to create a colored apple. Either print on white card stock and hand color before laminating or print them on colored card stock.
