Fun With Contractions

My class is so, so crazy about everything Pete the Cat! I have several kids who wear "Pete the Cat" shoes all the time, and on the occasional day when I wear my red Converse, WATCH OUT! Their excitement cannot be contained!

So when I was putting together some goodies for working with contractions, I decided to use graphics that hint at the Pete the Cat theme. Most people will look at the word cards I've made and think, "Hmmm... shoes."

But my class completely freaked out! "Pete the Cat words!!!"

At any rate, reading and writing contractions are one of the skills that we've always taught, and they are on the Common Core State Standards (unlike some of those skills that have mysteriously disappeared!) My students use these cards over and over for matching and sorting.And they are available on TpT. Click below!
