In this Contractions file you will find 3 different interactive Notebook activities for students to complete on their own or in whole group using modeling (cut&paste, matching, and sorting).
1. Is four pocket interactive where you sort the sentence based on the contraction used in the underline words. I have students color each of the four pocket as different color and then color the sentence the corresponding color for matching. We call it putting the french fries in the correct box. :)
2. The second interactive students create flaps and behind the flaps they write the correct contraction made from the two words. I also let them color this.
3. The third interactive is another matching / sorting one where students put the words under the correct contraction ending. I also allow them to color this one with corresponding colors before glue to prevent mistakes.
4. Is a bonus item an assessment that can be given at the end of the week of working on contractions or can be cut apart into 3 different days exit slips because each section analyze a different way to use contractions.
All of these can be complete in small group, whole group, or even in partners.
