Students in Ms. Lankford’s first grade classroom became word surgeons and performed “contraction-ectemy’s” on a variety of words. Students had 21 “patients” in need of a Contraction-ectemy, which included removing letters from words and adding apostrophes to form contractions. This lesson was an interactive way to teach students about contractions. Tomorrow, the students will be conducting a Post-Op report to view other word surgeons’ work to determine the contraction and explain how to form a contraction.
