We have been studying contractions this week. I have been using Cara's Crazy for Contraction packet from TPT. Here are some pictures of our contraction crocodiles. The kids loved this.

This is the one I made. I laminated it and used Velcro to attach the words so I can change them out. If you can't see they are words such as does not, he will, it is, etc. Please excuse the glare. The sun was shining bright here in TN today : )

 The kids then made their own mini crocs and had to take the words on my crocs belly and write the contraction on their crocs belly. So Cute!

I also made a St. Patrick's Day contraction match freebie for you as well. Click the picture to download yours. There is an easier and harder version. Enjoy!
