Teach kids about contractions with my new set of phonics readers!
(This post contains affiliate links.)
Are you teaching your students how to read and write contractions?
Contractions aren’t exactly a high interest topic, but these funny books will liven them up!
These five printable books are set 18 in my collection of free phonics books. Use them with the rest of my readers, or use this as a stand-alone set when teaching about how words combine to make contractions.
You’ll find five books in the set:
- will: I’ll, you’ll, he’ll, she’ll, they’ll, we’ll
- would: you’d, I’d, he’d, shed, we’d, they’d
- am, is are: I’m, you’re, he’s, she’s, it’s they’re
- has, have: I’ve, they’ve, you’ve, he’s, she’s, we’ve
- not: isn’t, haven’t, won’t, wouldn’t, can’t, doesn’t
Here’s a sample!
Each contraction is broken down into the words that make it.
This set of books builds on our previous phonics books. On this page, your child will review the silent e pattern (like), er (her), ea (clean), and ou (house).
I just love this picture. I know how she feels!
On the last page, your child will review all the contractions in the book.
How to print and assemble:
- Separate the stack into each individual book. Each book consists of two pages front to back.
- Cut across the horizontal center of the pages.
- Insert the pages into each other, using the page numbers as a guide.
- Staple with a long arm stapler.
