Welcome to our class blog!

We are a class of year 7 and 8 students who attend a semi-rural school on the outskirts of Tauranga in NZ. We are excited to share our experiences and learning at Tauriko School. Check back regularly to see what we have been up to. We have a load of fun in our class and would love to share it with you!

Contraction Action

We have been looking at contractions. There are two different types of contractions.

A contraction is a shortened form of one or two words (one of which is usually a verb). In a contraction, an apostrophe takes the place of the missing letter or letters.

Some contractions are: I'm (I am), can't (cannot) and how's (how is).

Let's see how many contractions we can come up with. Write two words which can be contracted. The next person writes the contracted form and adds two more words. I will start the chain off so you can see how it works.
