Today we dawned some surgeon gloves and completed Contraction Surgery. Thankfully all of our contractions made it out alive!! This was so much fun for the kiddos as an introductory lesson to contractions. The kiddos put on their gloves and laid out the surgical tools (scissors, index cards, a marker, and bandaids).
Then we wrote 2 words on the index cards (For Example: do not). These words were now our patients. Then we had to cut out the sick part (o) and bandage the patient back to gather so it could make sense again.
I don't think I have ever seen them concentrating so hard. It was a difficult task bandaging those patients with those gloves on!! Do you have a fun way to teach contractions?? I'd love to hear it!!
Have a great week!!
