Product Description
Fourth of July Activities: Patriotic Contractions

★ 4 Separate Sets – Matching Memory/Concentration

★ 48 Pairs of Contractions and Their Components

★ Text is color coded to keep sets separated.

Perfect for Summer School!


★ 2 Ways to Play

★ Optional recording sheets for students to write the contractions and the two words from which each is made.

★ Answer keys for each set are included.

★ Play as a simple independent matching activity or as a partner game.

Shuffle cards and place face down in 4 rows of 6.
Students take turns turning over 2 cards at a time and keeping them if they are a match (a contraction and its two components).

If you prefer, you can keep the sheets of contractions in tact as gameboards. Then, cut the other sheets with the component words into cards. This can be an individual activity for students to simply place the correct component cards onto the matching contractions.

The file can simply print just the contractions and their components with graphics on just one side if you don’t want any backings on the cards.
However, I have provided backings that can be used in two ways. You can print the entire file as is, and glue the backings to each of the 4 sets of Fourth of July Patriotic Memory/Concentration, OR you can print the backings on the reverse side of the contractions and their components by following these directions:
Print pages 1 & 2(these directions and seller information).
Print pages 3 - 10 - sheets of contractions and their matching components
Place pages 3-10 in the Printer’s Tray face up and facing you.
Now Print pages 11-18 - 5 different Fourth of July Patriotic Graphics will print out on the back of each set.

Pages 19-26 are 8 recording sheets (4 color and 4 black and white)
You can laminate the colored versions, and ask students to use erasable markers OR
You can make copies of the black and white versions, and students can record in pencil.

Page 27 is the color coded answer key.
Pages 28 & 29 contains 4 Contractions Champion Awards (2 in color and 2 in black and white)

Cut the contractions and contraction components sheets on the paper cutter into 12 square cards each.

Put the sets together according to their backings (or text color if you decided not to have backings).
Sets can be kept in baggies when not in use.
There are 24 cards per set.
