Contraction Surgery!

 We had so much fun learning about contractions today.  A couple of days ago, I saw a post on Pinterest from the First Grade Parade about contraction surgery, and since contractions were on the slate for this week, we tried it out.  I bought gloves, masks, and neon bandages from Wal-Mart for less than ten dollars total.  I taught them how contractions work, and then we performed surgery on words to remove certain letters.  It was a blast!

All patients survived the surgery!
Thanks First Grade Parade and Buzzing About Second Grade for an awesome teaching idea!

And if you're (oh, look at that awesome contraction!) interested, I have a fun contraction center for sale on Teachers Pay Teachers for only $1.
