Print out and laminate the contraction pumpkins. Then post them around the room. Give each student a copy of the Pumpkin Patch Contractions recording sheet. Have the students walk around the room finding each of the 13 pumpkins. When they have found one have them record the two words on the pumpkin and then on their own they will write the contraction form of that word.
This would also be a great work station activity or guided group activity.
