This tool themed interactive PowerPoint game is designed to be a free literacy center for your classroom.
As many teachers are moving towards classrooms with less paper, these types of resources for computer literacy centers or even whole class participation as a mini-lesson or review is a great alternative.
This free game is designed to give your students skill practice after they have been taught the concept of contractions.
Set this up on your student computers for morning practice or during literacy centers.
You might also display it on your SmartBoard for a morning entry task.
To use this with your whole class, give your students small white boards and dry erase markers. Display a slide with the problem, give students time to read and determine their answer.
As a class, you can discuss the answer and reasoning.
Students can self check and get excited as they see that their answers match the correct answers on the PowerPoint presentation.
This game focuses specifically on understanding and using contractions
Correct answers throughout the game are praised with a praise slide!
To play, students need to click on the “Click Here to Start” link and they will be taken to the first problem. When a problem is answered correctly, they will receive a slide giving them some praise. Students click on the praise and are taken to the next problem. (Students must click on the actual text for the slides to correctly work.)
When students answer a problem incorrectly, they will reach some type of “Try Again” slide and will need to click on those words to be taken back to the original problem for another attempt. (Incorrect clicks will continue to take them to the “try again” slide.)
The game is created so that the final slide is linked to return to the first slide.
