Visit the contraction factory and learn all about contractions in an interactive PowerPoint or Google Slides adventure! The slides are fully animated and show how two words blend to form a contraction. This makes the correct placement of the apostrophe easy to understand and remember. Six printables (a poster, four worksheets, and a monster mouth foldable) are included to reinforce and consolidate new grammar concepts. Perfect for students in 1st, 2nd, or 3rd grade.

Please watch the video preview (full screen) for detailed information. 

Use this pack for whole-class teaching (via Zoom or in-person), literacy centers, test prep, or review. The combination of colorful graphics, animation, sound clips, quiz-style informal assessment, and the use of personal whiteboards create a learning experience that works!
