Contractions Card

A contraction is a word or phrase that is (that’s) shortened by dropping one or more letters. The apostrophe will take the place of the missing letters. We use contractions in writing and speaking all the time. It is (it’s) a shorter way of speaking and writing! Hope it’s not too hard and you’ll enjoy the game!
