Reflection: Intervention and Extension Contractions With Is - Section 4: Closure


As mentioned in a previous section, I like to introduce the various contractions using the VKVs.  This really helps the students see the contraction and the two words that make up the contraction.  It also gives them experience writing the apostrophe.  Students still need to have independent practice experience with contractions.  I like to give these opportunities to students in both literacy centers and as independent seat work.  I would love to be able to make every resource in my classroom, however there just aren't enough hours in the day.  I've found some great resources on Teacher's Pay Teachers.  All these resources were freebies and I've included them for you here in this section.  This independent work will allow you to check student's understanding of contractions.
