Contraction Caterpillars

We have been busily working on contractions over the last few weeks.  The kids have been noticing that we find a lot of contractions in the books that we read.

Here are some of the contractions caterpillars that the kids made to help us remember our contractions.


  
   
  

The kids picked three contractions and wrote them on their circles.  Then they thought of the two words that make up the contraction and wrote the two words on the caterpillar's legs.



The kids really enjoyed making their consonant caterpillars.  We are hanging them in our classroom to help us remember the contractions as we continue to read our favorite books.
