Two games in one!!! These adorable matching games feature contractions and synonyms. Students can work independently or in pairs to match the contraction on the chicken to the correct eggs, then use the words they have created in their word journals, writing journals, for stories, and so much more. For the synonym game, students find the matching-pair-combination of mice and cheese. This makes a fun, interactive alternative to traditional worksheets and is great for reviewing, small-group, tutoring, spelling practice, and more. NOTE: This is half of the set. The other half is Contractions and Matching Games or Centers (Set 2) and is also free in my store.
