    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.

Great ideas and the kids feel so smart and clever when they do these paper folding projects.

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.

If I can spell... CVC words. Perfect for word work!

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.

foldable for compound words, blends, onset & rimes, or contractions
