Have fun teaching contractions. In the PowerPoint and video, a cute apostrophe replaces one or more letters that have been left out of one of two words to form a contraction (it is = it's). Use the PowerPoint and video below to teach students about contractions. Templates are provided for contraction match and bingo.
