"Bee" Aware - Freebie for Contractions

OK.....We've worked hard on using apostrophes to form possessives. Now my kiddos are wanting to call contractions possessive nouns. So it's back to the drawing board! It seems like I move one step ahead and two steps back every day. SIGH.

If you need an activity for contractions, here's what I'm using tomorrow afternoon for a review.

Just click on the pic above to get the file.

"Bee" a pal....leave a comment!


  1. I introduced possessives today and told the students I'd better not start seeing apostrophes every time a word ended in -s! Now I know what to watch out for when we get to contractions!

    Thank you for sharing this activity, too!

  2. Thanks for the cute freebie! Do you feel like you are teaching these concepts "in context" or do you have to do it as prescribed by the powers that be??

  3. My class did exactly the same thing. We have apostrophes flying around everywhere now. Thanks so much for the freebie. Love the graphics!!


  4. Thank you!! Just a question, did you mean to have did you mean to have cards 14, 15, 19 and 20 as contractions or should they have been the two words? In looking at the answer key it looked as if they should have been the two words.

    1. I have uploaded a corrected version now, so please go back and download it. Thanks!

  5. 14, 15, 19 and 20 are already contractions. I think you need to fix it so that they are two words. (darn that auto correct!) :)

  6. We have apostrophes everywhere too, so this will help us refocus. Thank you!

  7. Once again, thank you so much for sharing your great creations.
