Love this idea from Delights and Designs… You could easily extend this for more able pupils to contain more word types. Children are encouraged to come up and pick a word from the teacher. They then place the stick in the correct pot. To further extend, they could then pick a word from each cup and create a sentence. Perfect for assessment!
Love this idea too! Simply label large legos with the parts of contractions and then label others with the actual contraction. Mix them all up and have students put them all together, matching the parts with their contraction.
