Description

Contractions seem easy to native English speakers, but they can be very confusing for ELLs. Contractions take a lot of practice and this game is a fun way to get in that practice. This fun game practices 40 of the most common contractions.

See the game in action in the video How to Play Fishing For Contractions. The paper version of the game is available as Fishing for Contractions.

To play the game make a copy for each student or group of students (game can be played individually or in groups, I recommend groups of only 1 or 2) and give them editing rights. Students will then be able to type the contractions for the words indicated and, if correct (squares turn green when correct), "roll" the "dice" (push a button programmed with a special dice script) to see how many "casts" they get into the fishing pond for their points. Since this is a practice game I do not take a grade and so students do not need to return the completed game to me, but you can provide them with instructions for how you want this to happen.

Read more about this game in the blog post Fishing for Contractions.
