Imperfect Contractions

$7.95 USD $4.50 USD

These are just like our first quality cards except there is a slight production error that made us judge it as second quality. The error may be that the colors are slightly off, the images slightly askew, a spot or small hair in the laminate on one or more cards, and/or a slight curve to the laminate. Often the error is only on one card and customers can't find it (but we can)! Other than that, these are perfect and complete. Our production error means big savings for you!

What happens when you squish two words together to make a new, shorter word? Contractions! Read these cards yourself to inspire your spoken language games. Then, once the children start reading, set them free to play contraction card matching games.

  • Right-left format makes it easy to lay out cards in columns for matching

  • Color-coded (berry) to distinguish these cards from other word study materials

  • 12 pairs of matching cards; 24 cards total

  • Rounded corners (no pricked fingers or dog-eared cards)

  • Cards can be displayed in our small berry cloth pouch

  • Comes in a sturdy, clear reclosable bag for storage

  • Fully laminated

  • Lesson plan included
