Encourage growth in spelling and writing conventions with a Contractions for Kids Google Interactive.

Teaching Contractions Made Easy with Google Slides

A contraction is a shortened form of two words with an apostrophe taking the place of the omitted letter(s), e.g. do not = don’t. Once students learn where to put the apostrophe, contractions are a breeze! That’s where this resource comes in. It is the perfect writing activity to use again and again with your students to help them get the hang of it. They’ll love it!

This interactive activity makes teaching contractions exciting for students! With a drag-and-drop interface, students will build contractions from their base words. Further activities have students combine base words with building contractions and finding contractions in context. This rainbow-themed interactive is perfect for teaching contractions to your year three students.

Through this activity, students will show their ability to make, use, and spell contractions.
