Our dictado for the last two weeks has been focusing on contractions, and I wanted to do something fun and craftsy with my students. I had seen a similar project on Pinterest, but of course I adapted it so that I wouldn't have to print anything and that it would be slightly more educational and still fit within the time frame of an hour. I have the complete instructions for the teacher, examples of each step, step-by-step student instructions, and the fun bulletin board we made from it on my site http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Stephanie-Madison This is just a sneak peak for my blog friends to share a fun idea!
What fun, fall-themed activities are you doing in your class? Are you doing anything special for Halloween in your room? Leave a comment, repin, share on facebook, etc so others can create creepy contraction mansions as they practice their spelling skills too. Happy Autumn!
