Need engaging & fun activities to get your students excited about learning contractions? This game is for you! Zero worksheets and very little prep!
In Contractions Slam, students are put in groups of 3-4 (can be modified for smaller groups too). Each group has a set of 15 contractions that are cut apart. The teacher will read a direction from the teacher script. Ex: "I know you will love this game!" The first student to slap the correct contraction - you will - gets to keep the card. Then you move on to the next direction. The student with the most cards at the end is the winner!
The kids will LOVE this game because they are practicing contractions WITHOUT having to do a paper/pencil worksheet. I have included two versions of the game, so you can play twice. One game students hear the two words and slap the contraction. In the other game, students hear the contraction and slap the two words that make it. You can also modify the activity to play with small groups.
