A set of 36 contraction matching cards that can be used individually, in pairs or small groups, or as part of a whole-class activity.

Are you looking for a simple but fun activity to use with your students when working with contractions? Then you will definitely want to grab this one! Simply print the cards on cardstock and cut along the dotted lines. Store in a resealable bag to be used again and again.

This resource includes 18 contraction pairs and instructions for 4 activities that you can play with your students! Two of the activities are great to throw in a reading center or writing center (depending on the skill you are reinforcing) while the other two make the perfect whole-class activity!
