Contraction Surgery During our study of contractions, my students performed Word Surgery. First we dressed the part with our masks and gloves. They gathered tools such as scalpel (scissors), stitches (tape), and bandages (Band-Aids). Each team assisted each other during surgery. They cut off the letters they didn't need and bandaged them back together with Band-Aids and tape. I wanted them to always remember how to form a contraction. They had a lot of fun doing it. They were very excited to take home their surgery gear. I even overhead one of my students saying they were going to make their own word cards and try it again at home!

Paint Chip Contractions ~ Combines my love of paint swatches!!!
Language Arts Paint Chip Contractions Here’s a colorful way for students to practice forming contractions! Make a chart containing words that make up contractions and place it at a center. Also provide a variety of four-color paint chips, paper, and pens. A child selects a paint chip and writes in the first two boxes two words from the chart that, when combined, form a contraction as shown. Next, he writes the new ending (including the apostrophe) in the fourth box. He accordion-folds the last two squares so that the ending replaces the second word to form the contraction. He repeats the process twice and then uses each contraction in a sentence.

Where's My Mummy? is a great resource for a classroom. The story is about a mummy who plays hide and seek because he does not want to go to bed. It connects Halloween ideas throughout the story. A perfect activity to go with this story would be to do a "When I Am Scared My Mummy (Mommy)..." and the students would write what their mother does when they are scared. This connects family life at home with the story and its concepts.

Story maps help student pull the story apart and figure out what what it's all about. Some may think that this is unimportant to teach students in higher elementary grades but students still need to "learn to read" not only "read to learn" from kindergarten to middle school and beyond. This learning doesn't just stop once readers have a firm grasp on how to read.
Love how easy this would be to reuse again and again!

Reusable Story Map Idea for Bulletin Board by Growing Kinders
Great alternative for the print-and-post stuff I normally do. Turn a routine weekly story map (to go along w/ textbook story) into a routine weekly anchor chart! Add in vocabulary words, spelling words, and let kids help make it... then they'll actually pay attention to it. :)

Students circulate through the classroom and meet new friends! Here's a great team building activity I like to have on hand for the first week of school! Use "Find a Friend" for a quick structure to allow for student interaction, to model classroom expectations for movement in the room, and to review and practice classroom manners.
