Spin and Write Contractions: A Fun and Engaging Learning Tool

This simple worksheet has been designed by a teacher for the utmost engagement. This activity combines the excitement of a spinner with the challenge of forming contractions, making grammar practise fun and engaging. 

This worksheet will help students reinforce their understanding of contractions in an enjoyable and hands on manner. By spinning and landing on two words, students get to practise forming the correct contraction, enhancing their grammar skills each spin.

How to Create Your Own Spinner for a Worksheet

Here are a few simple ways to create a spinner for this activity:

  • Paperclip and Pencil Spinner: Place a paperclip in the center of the spinner circle on the worksheet. Hold a pencil vertically in the center of the paperclip and flick the paperclip to spin it.
  • DIY Arrow Spinner: Cut out an arrow from cardboard or thick paper and attach it to the center of the spinner circle with a brass fastener, allowing it to spin freely.
  • Reusable Spinner: Use a transparent spinner from a board game and place it over the worksheet’s spinner circle.

Laminate for Long-Lasting Fun

To make this resource even more versatile and durable:

  • Laminate the Worksheet: Laminate the “Spin and Write Contractions” worksheet to make it reusable. Students can write on it with whiteboard markers and easily wipe it clean after each use.
  • Use Whiteboard Pens: After laminating, provide students with whiteboard pens to fill in their contractions. This not only makes the activity eco-friendly but also allows for repeated practice without the need for additional paper.
