We have two very active boys in our family. They are not big fans of language arts. But they ARE big fans of anything related to construction.
So I thought I’d make a language arts contractions lesson that lets them learn how to “build” basic English contractions: Construction Contractions!
It’s a complete construction themed language arts lesson on how to make and use standard English contractions that’s perfect for construction fans!
Read on to see how to get your copy of Construction Contractions and what’s included in this ELA resource!

Construction Contractions: Construction Themed Language Arts Contractions Lesson
Inside Construction Contractions, you’ll find 66 pages of language arts learning fun! This is truly a complete lesson for teaching kids about how to form common English contractions.
The product includes “building” activities for 24 basic English contractions, such as:
- And 18 more!
With each English contraction, kids learn which words are used to form it and how they should spell and write the contraction.
Along with writing and spelling practice, kids can get to practice rewriting sentences using the contractions they learn.
There are three matching activity quizzes included as well, which offer a simple way to review the concepts after you complete the pack.
Plus, ALL of our construction contraction flashcards are included! There are 48 contraction flashcards in this product!
One set with word pairs and the matching contraction, and another set without the contraction so that you can quiz your little learners.

I just found you and am so excited to read all about homeschooling with add. I requested to join the Facebook group as well. I just started homeschooling this year, I have 6 kids ages 1-13 and I was diagnosed with add last year. We are in the process of having two of our children evaluated as well. I am floundering so badly and feel like I’m failing at homeschooling. But my kids hated public school and would be devastated to be put back.
Looking forward to reading more, I am so impressed with what I’ve seen here so far!

Hi! Thanks for stopping by. Nice to “meet” you! I have so many days when I feel overwhelmed too, so I’m not sure if that ever goes away…lol. But I will say that I’ve pretty much found our homeschooling “groove” and that’s helped a lot. I’ve also had to cut back on the number of things I try to do each day (which is hard when you get bored every five minutes), but I’m slowly getting better at it. 🙂
