LEARNING to make a difference

Week 5

Spelling activity

 

This week’s spelling rule is apostrophes for contraction.       

 

Sometimes, we join two words together to make them shorter. We call them contractions.      

To make these new words, you have to remove some letters and put in an apostrophe where the missing letters should go.

For example; I am becomes I’m – we have removed the a and added an apostrophe.

 

Below are a list of words that can become contractions. Have a go at joining them together. The first one has been done for you. The answers are on the page if you follow the answers link.

 

 

I will = I’ll

Do not =

I would =

Had not =

You are =

He will =

Is not =

 

Cannot =

I have =

Have not =

They are =

You have =

Has not =

Will not =

I had =

Are not =

Could not =

  • Practise writing these words out neatly using your joined handwriting.
  • Practise spelling them using the look, say, cover, write and check technique or use another technique like the pyramid one.
  • Try to use them in a sentence.
  • Ask someone to test you on them on Friday.
