Who goes with “did not”? “Didn’t”, of course! Match contractions drawn onto team t-shirts. Crayola Dry-Erase Crayons make this activity easy to enjoy again and again.
A contraction is a shortened combination of two or more words in which some letters are left out. A punctuation mark called an “apostrophe” marks the location where the missing letters had been in the original words.
Students create pairs of index cards with sets of contractions and their two-word counterparts, one on each card. Provide each child with a dry-erase board and Crayola Dry-Erase Crayons.
Secretly give each student one index card. Tell students that the card is like a contraction “team name.” Ask students to draw a boy or girl wearing a t-shirt on their dry-erase boards. On the t-shirt they should write the “team name.” Remind students to do their drawing privately so no one can see what “team” is on the t-shirt they have drawn.
When all children have completed their illustrations, invite children to move about the room silently, reading the other contraction “team names” on the other dry erase boards until they find the one that goes with theirs. Student partners with corresponding contractions should stand side by side with their boards displayed for their classmates to see.
