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

Prefer to craft your own materials? Purchase our Contractions PDF and print and cut them for yourself.

Created by a Montessori teacher with help and guidance from Montessori teachers and teacher trainers. Eco-printed by parents/teachers/students in our rural New England office. Cards are approximately 2.75" x 1.75".

Made in the USA.

These are also available as part of our complete Word Study Card Set.
