    Paint Chip Contractions ~ Combines my love of paint swatches!!!

  • Emily Cash

    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.

"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

Contraction kites. This would be a great activity to do in class. Do one as an example, then assign a contraction to each student. Once they've finished, hang them in the hall or around the wall.
