Product Description
Contractions: This 65-slide PowerPoint is designed for students learning about contractions or reviewing how contractions are formed.

It also contains a 3-page PowerPoint companion handout. Students write on the handout, recording their answers, as you advance through the PowerPoint.

The PowerPoint follows this basic layout:

Slide 1: Title Page

Slides 2-3: Definition of Contraction

Slides 4-27: follow this pattern:

Even-numbered slides show two words and pose the question: Which letter or letters need to be kicked out to form a contraction?

Odd-numbered slides are animated so that the letter(s) (from the previous slide) get kicked out of view and the new contraction is formed

Slides 28-38: A sentence is displayed with two underlined words. Students rewrite the underlined word as a contraction (on a personal white board or piece of lined paper).

Slides 39-51: A sentence containing a contraction is displayed. Students rewrite the contraction as two separate words.

Slides 52-65: Challenge slides! (You may or may not choose to share these slides, depending upon the grade level and ability of your students.) These slides contains sentences like "What're you doing this weekend?" and "They'd better be careful." Students rewrite the contractions as two separate words.

Slide 66: Credits

Check out the PREVIEW for more information. (Keep in mind that the preview is a PDF, while the purchased product would be real PowerPoint presentation with animated text boxes.)

**Note- This PowerPoint cannot be edited due to copyright restrictions. I used clip art and fonts that were created by another author, and I need to follow their "terms of use" policies.**
