Contraction Surgery

We had great fun today exploring what contractions are. We are learning that they are two words made into one. 

We pretended to be word doctors who had to do surgery on the words. First we looked at our two words and remembered that the first word always stays the same. Then we looked at the second word and thought about which letter would 'pop' out and used the scissors to cut it out. Finally we used a plaster to stick the words back together and drew on the 'scar' (the apostrophe) where the letter used to be.
