Contraction Surgery

Hello Everyone:)

My students perform "Contraction Surgery!"  This is probably one of my most favorite teaching days.  My class had such a great time discovery contractions.

The "tools" needed for surgery.

I am sharing the file I prepared to use with my class on Teacher's Notebook - you can find it by clicking on the picture below.  

**I have updated this file as of 1/26/12.  If you purchased it prior to that date and can not download the new file in your teacher's notebook account, please send me an e-mail with your teacher's notebook username and I will personally e-mail you the updated file.  Thanks!!!

  5. I did this with my 2nd Graders today and they loved it! They really got into it. I wonder if you have any tricks for the "not" contractions. I noticed that my students seemed to run into a snag with them because of having to cut the "o" from the middle of the word instead of just chopping off the beginning of the word like on the others.
