This is a great activity as a completion to your contraction unit. My first graders completed the unit on contractions by performing Contraction Surgery. I made this powerpoint to use prior to the surgery activity. Included is the learning target, reviews which letters have "germs" and need to be removed, a brain break, letter to the "doctors", exit slip activity, early finishers activity. My kiddos LOVED this!! Enjoy!
NOTE: You will have to move the x's over the correct letter to be removed BEFORE presenting. The font I used will probably NOT be the same font after you purchase unless you check out the credits page and download the fonts I used. If you download my original font, everything will line up perfectly. I have included presenter notes to help guide this lesson. Enjoy!!
