Why not use the seasonal "gift" theme to practice contractions. You can use it as morning work or it makes a great addition to your guided reading "word work" time.
Children will have fun matching the contractions to the words that make them.
Instruct your students to use the same color to match the words with the contraction, for example: if they color the gift with the words "IS NOT" red, then the gift with the contraction "ISN'T" should also be colored red. They will need seven different colors.
What a colorful way to practice contractions!
