Leprechauns are tricky and contractions can be too. . .but they don't have to be! With the purchase of this 39 page file you will receive activities packed with St. Patrick's Day spirit that will surely delight your little leprechauns. "Leprechaun Contractions" will require your students to match word cards to the contraction that they create. I have included 2 different recording sheets (for differentiated instruction purposes). The first sheet asks your students to simply record their contraction matches. The second sheet asks your students to record their contraction matches and write a sentence using each contraction. "Catching Contractions" requires your students to identify a contraction within a sentence and record the contraction (and the 2 words that create it) on their recording sheet.
"Leprechaun Contractions" and "Catching Contractions" both include enough cards to create 5 center activities for your students.
I have also included a cut and paste matching sheet for further practice.
