Fluency and Fitness® brain breaks are a great way to get the wiggles out while practicing contractions. Students BEG to do this! Teachers love helping their kids get the wiggles out without losing instructional time. This bundle includes 5 slideshows to help your students practice making and breaking apart compound words. Each slideshow has 5 different exercises for students to do. Click on the preview file to see examples of the bundles that are included or check out my YouTube channel to see some bundles in action in a classroom!
• Contractions - break apart the word into 2 words
• Contractions - break apart the word into 2 words (version 2)
• Contractions - put the 2 words together to make a contraction
• Contractions - put the 2 words together to make a contraction (version 2)
• Contractions - mix of both skills (breaking up words & making word)
How to play:
The slideshow will present huge words. The students will either break apart or make a contraction. When they see a slide with a kid exercising, they do that exercise until you choose to go to the next slide. The teacher clicks to control how fast/slow the slides move so you can go slow when introducing the skill, and faster once students start to master it. You do not have to have a smart board for this, I just use a projector and show it on a wipe off board. When you download this file open the "READ THIS FIRST" file so you can see more detailed instructions on how to play, multiple ways to use, and how to add timers/sound if you'd like.
*****You will receive a PDF version & Powerpoint version. The Powerpoint sets are editable so you can move the slides around so they aren't always in the same order when you play the game. You can not edit the content. This material is copyrighted and you are not allowed to create your own Fluency & Fitness® games or distribute this in any way. It is for a single classroom use only!*****
