Contractions Games ~ Search and Find & Sorting

Grammar and spelling are so hard to make engaging.  I tried these two contractions games out on my fourth grader and they BOTH were a hit!

Game 1:  Each card has the two words that make a contraction with a matching “find” the contraction graphic. Students use a magnifying lens to “find” the contractions. Write the contraction next to the matching words.  Games are shown below.

Game 2:  Laminate the pumpkin cards and put them in a basket.  Kids pull out the words and write the correct contraction on the graphic organizer.  Examples below:
