Product Description
This hands-on activity shows students the before and after of each contraction. Using a long cutout of a dog, you write on the two words included in the contraction and fold the dog in a certain way to make a contraction. Hence, the dog gets shorter when it is folded, just like the contraction is a shortened version of two words. Great for visual and kinesthetic learners!
I used this activity for Workshop time (OPEN COURT) for differentiated instruction. If you have language arts centers, it is essentially what workshop time was. Great for small group work with or without the teacher. For accountability, students can write down 10 of their favorite contractions; the two words, and then the contraction they create. Have them check for correct placement of the apostrophe, and any unnecessary letters (Specifically for the "NOTS" and "HAVE'S".)

I RECOMMEND YOU LAMINATE THESE DOGS. (They will go through a lot of use and last you through the years.)
Also, I recommend printing in COLOR, and on regualar, LIGHT-WEIGHT paper before LAMINATING, so folding is easier.

Included are 4 slides of dogs, 2 of which have actual examples. Then, 7 slides of the different categories of contractions; including, nots, haves, its, theys, etc. And then one slide with the directions to creating the actual Contraction Canines.

If you need to save time, then see my other posting for Contraction Canines Already Created. I have chosen over 20 contraction and already created dogs (with contractions on them) that you merely need to print, laminate and fold. Thanks!
