Looking for a fun and engaging grammar game to teach or revisit how apostrophes are used in contracted words?

This pack contains a loop card game that is perfect for a whole class or small groups to develop their understanding of contractions. This simple game asks pupils to find words that are the contractions of the previous words in the loop. There are 32 cards, allowing the game to be played by the whole class as a starter activity to revisit previous learning; or groups could create the loop as part of a main teaching activity on contracted words.

Once the resource is created, it can be used time and time again to revisit this area of learning as part of whole class teaching or an intervention for pupils who may need further support.

What is a contracted word?

Contracted words, or contractions, are words that are created by putting two words together. Some letters are omitted in the contraction and are replaced with an apostrophe. The apostrophe indicates where the letters were when the two words were written in full.

Contracted word examples

  • do not - don’t
