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.

" CONTRACTION SURGERY" I absolutely LOVE this idea!! How much FUN would this be to teach? No to mention the KIDS would love it and I'm sure they would Never forget it!!:D

Love this contraction anchor chart, perfect for visual learners. Thanks babbling Abby!

Learned this in third grade (and in my bilingual program at that.) I can't believe it when people don't know these things!

"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
