My kiddos have been saying "easy as pie" lately in class - something a teacher loves to hear, because (1) you taught the standard oh so well and your kids are feeling successful (2) you can raise the bar again! So, I parlayed this concept into a packet with a little dash of holiday flavor.
This collection has a contraction introduction (pocket chart sort), Contraction Rap by Ron Brown's Intelli-Tunes, center games, and a number of independent activities/worksheets.
In addition, this contraction pack has an Easy As Pie Craftivity that the kiddos eat up every year . . . snicker . . . snicker . . . eat up. It looks great on the wall and it's one that you don't feel the need to rip down right after Thanksgiving Break.
|You can have the kids use the optional labels or hand write the contractions.|
There is just something about that "whipped cream" that cracks the kids up.

Alright friends . . . I am off to finish up this week's lesson plans and work on my latest pack. I am out of coffee so I will see how far I get. Might need to take a little field trip in an hour or so. If you are interested in scoring my whole Contraction Pack, visit my TPT Shop for more details.
Oh, and I did want to show you . . . the "after." It ain't great, but at least it doesn't look like yesterday's disaster :) Thanks for visiting my friends. I'll see you soon.
