Reflection: Checks for Understanding Contractions With Am, Not, and Will - Section 4: Reading Our Contractions/Closure


My students did well with this task.  They were able to write their VKVs and read their contractions with little problem.  I still wanted to make sure students continued to have some ongoing, hands on practice with contractions.

I decided I was going to work smarter and not harder and went to Teachers Pay Teachers to find some pre-made activities that I could implement in my classroom.  I try to make as many resources for my lessons as possible, but I'm not superhuman and there are 24 hours in a day, so sometimes I rely on other teachers to help me out.  All of these resources I'm sharing with you I found on the website for free.  You can use these activities for seatwork when you are teaching reading groups or you can also use them as center activities.  This gives students ample opportunities to continue to have some hands-on, independent practice with contractions.  I will tell you that in these resources that there are more contractions that what we've covered here today, so you may have to modify the activities if you wish.
