Contraction Matching Game

Contraction Matching Game

Contractions are combined forms of two words, like “I’m” (I am) and “isn’t” (is not). Children learn to recognize common contractions in this contraction matching game. After printing and cutting out 12 pairs of cards, kids place them face down to match each contraction to the words they are formed from. This memory game, designed for a first and second grade reading and writing curriculum, is an engaging, hands-on way to support children’s understanding of apostrophes in contractions.
