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

Rounded corners (no pricked fingers or dog-eared cards)
Cards can be displayed in our small berry cloth pouch
