In this lesson, students will learn how to make contractions with two words.
Students will be able to make two words into one new word using an apostrophe. Discuss why it is important to learn about contractions.
Students will share some ways that words can be combined to form a single word.
Show students the words "did not" and "didn't." Ask students what was left out when the words were pushed together. Read a few more contractions and discuss what was left out. Next, students will sing about contractions to the tune of "London Bridge is Falling Down." They will combine words to form contractions, such as "can + not = can't." They will then match the two words to their contraction.
Students will respond to ten short answer questions.
Students will recall what they learned:
- How do you form contractions?
- What are some examples of contractions you can create?
Students will list two words and combine them to form a contraction.
