Product Description
Engage your students in contraction fun- JENGA STYLE! Join the craze! Paint the ends of your jenga sets and turn them into an awesome ELA game. This set focuses on identifying what words make up contractions. CCSS Aligned - I Can statements on student recording page.

Each activity sheet includes a sidebar of relevant notes on the concept being taught. Then there is a section of problems for each color jenga block.

Product includes:
-teacher directions
-student work page (2 sides): includes relevant contraction notes/vocabulary, recording page, directions, and I can sentences.
-student work page with fill in the blank color spaces (in case your jenga set has different colors!)

Directions
Students will play game in groups of 3-5
1.Player “A” decides which colored block they would like to remove from the jenga tower.
2. The player will find the section on the paper that has the same color listed as the block chosen. Player “A” must complete the next available question in that section. As the player solves the problem, they need to verbally explain how they are solving the problem aloud.
3. If everyone in the group agrees with the answer, Player “A” will go check that their answer is correct (either with a teacher or the answer key).
4. If the answer is correct, Player “A” will remove the block from the jenga tower and the game will continue with the next player’s turn. If the answer is incorrect, Player “A” must erase their work and the next player will start their turn.

If the tower falls players can rebuild and continue the game.
If the players run out of questions for a specific color, they can choose to only pick available colors.
