A Spring and plant themed matching game with a recording sheet for students to build and write contractions.
There are 2 versions of this game- Students can match the contraction to the two words that build it OR they can match the two words to the contraction they make when put together. This activity can be used in a whole group, small group, ELA stations / centers, or guided reading setting. I've even had my third graders use it as a review, morning work, and when they are early finishers. It focuses on contractions that use "not" and "will".
Included in Download:
- 15 "Find the Building Words" Contraction Flower Cards (one is blank if you'd like to add to the words)
- 1 page of Word Leaves that are used to build on the Contraction Cards
- 15 "Find the Contraction" Flower Cards (one is blank if you'd like to add to the words)
- 1 page of Word Flower Middles that are used to identify the missing contractions
Flower Cards are in straight lines so they can be left as a whole page, cut into strips, or cut individually.
