PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This song was born when I was struggling to find a creative avenue to teach my students contractions. The thought of a monster eating the letters gave way to a whole new concept to keep learning contractions fun and engaging. As the letters in the words disappear and are replaced by an apostrophe, the main character grows apprehensive. Because the apostrophe "monster" is so memorable, students will recall the concept long after the "assignment."

FYI! The video above includes an excerpt from my workshop detailing how I use this song in the classroom, as well as the full Contractions video at the end. Please make sure to click on the SUPPORTING DOCUMENT as it gives you a zip file containing my Contractions video as well as the related activities.

Please make sure to leave me a comment or review below to let me know what you think! Thanks so much and HAPPY SINGING!
