This whole class activity is a way for students to learn contractions. There are 31 different contractions in total. The game only works if the students' listen to one another, that's one of the reasons why I love it!
Hand a card to each student, double up if needed. The student with the card that says ‘I will start’ will stand up and read his/her card out loud. The student who has the matching contraction of this card will stand up and read their card. The game continues like this until the finished card is read. Once a student reads they can sit back down. See how fast you can get around the class!
Enjoy! Please leave comments, ratings and feedback! All the best!
