My kiddos seem to be having a hard time with contractions...maybe it's because our reading series throws plural nouns (just _s and _es), possessive nouns and contractions at us within a few weeks of each other....who was that genius? :) Before I know it, I'm seeing apostrophes all over the place and none of them in the proper place! So, while reading What Santa Can't Do by Douglas Wood and Doug Cushman, I was inspired to create some VERY basic worksheets that would help my kids.

I left the last sentence open ended on each page to allow my children to complete it on their own...as we're still working on sentence structure too! If we have an extra few minutes I'm going to have the children illustrate their sentence(s) on the back. I'm thinking it will make great classwork, seat work or even morning work once they get the hang of it!
I included the following contractions in this packet: can't, don't, isn't won't, didn't, let's, it's, she's, he's, they're, and we're.
Hope it's something you can use!
