This is where you write your answer. Write the contraction you can make using the two words shown on the game card. Includes - 18 game cards and recording sheet with instructions for use.
Contraction Crash: These activity cards ask students to find the two separate words, that when ‘crashed’ together create the contraction.

Contraction Construction Clip Cards: A delivery has been dropped off to the construction yard. It is carts and carts of words that make contractions. The only problem is, the delivery company has sent some of the wrong words! Players read the contraction on the road sign. Clip a peg or place a counter over the box with the two words that create the contraction shown. Teacher TIP: Place a sticker or marking on the back of each correct answer. This allows students to flip the card over and see if they made the correct choice. Includes – 33 contraction clip cards and instructions for use.
