Day 1

Today we will be learning about words which contain apostrophes. We call these contractions. Words like I'm, don't, can't, couldn't, she'd...…...


Here is a link to a song about contractions 

If anything, the children will find it fun and it will help them to remember the words.


Explain that contractions are made up of two words that are joined together. When the words are joined letter/s are removed and replaced with an apostrophe. Share some examples. Can they think of any? Can they spot any in their reading books? 


Activities you could do: 

  • Create a fun contraction caterpillar. How long can you make him/her?    
  • play a pairs memory game
  • write words such as these on paper. Can your child find the matching pair?   


  •  pairs flip book
