Are you beginning a unit on contractions. You can use this contractions poster as an easy to use reference. Just click on the link to the right to download this poster.
This poster is going to be a part of a unit that I'm building on teaching contractions. It will have worksheets, games, buliten board ideas, and activities to help your student learn about contractions. You can learn more about this upcoming project by Clicking on the What's New blog.
This hotdog (Dachshund) contraction craft is going to be included in my contractions unit. I've made it available for a limited time free, you can download it by clicking on the link below. The idea for this craft is that you'll write the contraction on the dog, and the missing letters on the strip. You glue the strip to the dog and when you open the dog further you see the long form of the contraction.
I'm going to have a larger color version of this craft available as well. The color one can be laminated and used over and over again. It can also be used as a guide for students so they understand what their complete dog will look like.
After students have completed the craft they can be used to create a bullitin board, or gathered toghether to make a classroom contraction book. Please leave a comment letting me know how the craft turned out!
