    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.
