Ms. Huffman recently did a contraction  lesson with the Title I first graders at Norfolk Christian. The students and Ms. Huffman discussed what contractions were and then we practiced making contractions using a process called Contraction Surgery.

Students put on medical gloves and surgical masks. Ms. Huffman told them that they were going to do “Contraction Surgery.” They were each given a set of cards that they were going to make into contractions. They had scissors (scalpel) that they used to cut the cards to make the word into a contraction.

After cutting the cards…

they put them back together with bandaids to make them into contractions.

The activity enhanced their surgical skills as well as their contraction skills.
