This contraction pack was inspired by Mo Willems’ beloved characters – Elephant, Piggie, and the Pigeon! I was inspired when I realized in reading these books several times that Elephant and Piggie seldom use contractions and the Pigeon uses them frequently! All the activities use the contractions found in Mo Willems’ books, making the addition of reading these books a compliment to your lessons.
This pack includes: activities and games to help students match contractions with their two-word counterparts, write contractions, and re-write sentences using contractions.Students will be able to:
-Find words that make contractions
-Match contractions with their two-word counterpart
-Separate contractions into two separate words
-Rewrite sentences using contractions
Please check out the preview to see examples of the activities included!
