I had a classroom full of surgeons today! Contraction Surgeons! We performed surgery on a variety of words to practice making contractions.
We had a great time diagnosing, cutting, and repairing bone words to create contractions!
I've updated it a bit since the last time I did it with my students (you can see that post here). I put together a pack of the materials I used for this lesson. You can find it here in my TpT store. I also have a fun independent contraction center on sale for just a $1.
