1st Graders Perform Word Surgery

Yesterday, first grade students enjoyed a lesson on contractions…with a fun twist.  Wearing cool surgical masks and official doctor badges, students performed surgery on words such as “Can Not” and “You Will” to turn them into contractions.  After removing the unnecessary parts, the patients (i.e. the contractions) were put back together using a bandage and an apostrophe.  The kids had so much fun learning with this lesson!
