Contraction game

It can be difficult for kids to grasp contractions. But I’ve found that turning things into fun, educational activities where kids are engaged not only makes learning fun, but helps children retain what they’ve learned better. This contraction game is a great way for students in grade 2, grade 3, grade 4, and grade 5 to grasp how contractions are formed and practice making common contractions.

Whether you are a parent, teacher, or homeschooler – you will love that this activity makes great extra practice, literacy center in your classroom, or supplement to your English Grammar curriculum or homeschool spelling curriculum.
