I saw the same thing with regard to the “abbreviations” portion. I believe it should read “contractions” as well. It’s a great resource. Please consider editing that portion. I’d love to use all of it in my classroom!

Hi Robin & Meagan,

Thanks very much for pointing that out. We have updated the file and it is available to be downloaded now.

Kind regards

As I was laminating this resource I noticed the section that says more apostrophes, I think the second heading is meant to be contractions not abbreviations. Would this be correct?
