Oh. My. Word. Contraction surgery! What a spectacular idea. I will totally be doing this with my first graders. That is if we teach contractions. :o) Otherwise, I'll be sharing the idea!

Contractions surgery. They also have CTP's Dots on Black Cards as name tags on their desks!

The kids got masks & surgical gloves and then went to town with their scalpels {scissors} cutting apart words and then bandaging new words {contractions} together. I put them in small ‘surgical teams’ and each doctor got to perform surgery while the other team members assisted in surgery if the doc needed help. I took all the bandaged words and then made a little anchor chart{ish} to remind the kids what we learned.

"I used cupcake cut outs (I'm crazy about cut outs!)from the Parent Teacher Store, then glued the words onto them. They are better for making puzzles and games, because they are much thicker than regular paper, so they will hold up longer--which is GREAT! I had a sweet parent cut the icing tops off of each cupcake to make the puzzles." Mrs. Cooley Word Work Freebie
