We’ve got more free printable flashcards for you today! This time, we’re sharing free contraction flashcards with a fun construction theme!
My boys are deep into a construction phase right now. Roo, in particular, is obsessed with earth movers, bulldozers, cranes, dump trucks, and just about anything related to building.
He told me last week that he intends to be a firefighter, a builder, and a policeman. I told him that was good, because he could build a house. Then if the house caught on fire, he could put it out and take the person who caused the fire to jail. To this he replied, “And then I’d build it all over again!”
So, I made these flashcards to help him learn about language arts in a fun way. Read on to get your set! And for more language arts fun, check out Construction Contractions – our complete English contractions ELA lesson!
