We use Spelling City in Computer Lab a lot and I have noticed more and more of my students are using the Test Me part to create a list of Contractions. They are really trying to memorize them - but they are having a hard time remembering the rules for each Contraction family. I created a game to help them remember these rules. There are 88 puzzles in total (available in color and black and white.) Half of the puzzle has the Contraction and the other half has the two words that form the Contraction. Each family has its own color to help isolate each set when you are playing the game.
To play, students must find the Contraction and the two words that make up that Contraction. They will then record use the Score Sheet to record the word and they must also use it correctly in a sentence. I included a sample page to demonstrate how to fill out the score sheet.
The winner is the player who collects the most correct pairs of Contractions! They can tally their scores at the bottom of the Score Sheet. This is also a great way for me to easily assess their understanding of each Contraction. Students can self-correct their work using the Answer Keys before they pass in their Score Sheets.
I included three posters that break down the rules for each contraction family.All the items in this set are also included in grayscale to save on ink.
This set is available in my Tpt and Teachers Notebook shop for $5.50!
Thanks for visiting and have a great Sunday!
