Contraction Activities for the Classroom

Contraction Activities

If contractions are something you regularly teach, you probably have a variety of contraction matching activities. I’ve seen really cute matching activities for just about every holiday or theme imaginable. So . . to be a little different, I have included a fan graphic organizer for your lesson.

Contraction Activities - Free Printable Contraction OrganizerThe graphic organizer contains the following contractions:

  • not
  • be
  • will
  • would
  • have
  • had
  • one-of-a-kind contractions such as of-the-clock and  Jack-of-the-Lantern

After printing the pages onto cardstock, cut the strips apart. Have the students write the contraction for each word set. When completed connect the strips with a brad. This creates a fan organizer.
