Learning Contractions

So this week's spelling list for my second graders deals with contractions.  I've created a SmartBoard activity about performing contraction surgery!  On the SmartBoard, students are to look at the original word on "Bob's" left foot, and perform surgery using the scalpel, to create the contraction word.  The contraction word will be under the band aid on the right foot.

For example, if the word on "Bob's" left foot is I will, then students would perform surgery to make the word I'll.  Clicking on the band aid will reveal the contraction word! This is a simple and fun way to practice contraction words with students!
