The Make, Take & Teach Doggone Contractions activity is perfect for either literacy centers or small group instruction when teaching and practicing contractions. You can easily differentiate this activity by choosing which and how many contractions to use. Students simply choose a bone, write the contracted form of the words on the recording sheet and then turn the bone over to check the answer. Two recording forms have been provided. You may choose to laminate the colored form and have the students record their answers using a dry erase marker or print the black and white recording form on office paper.
