  • Thanks Twinkl!! I love the way you always listen and make these resources better and better!! You guys are rocking!!!! This resource is now HUGE with so many contractions my students won't know whats hit them!!
    I LOVE IT!! It is now an 'awesome' resource for sure as it now includes heaps and heaps of contractions as per the Twinkl Contractions Word Mat.

  • This is a limited but ok resource. It is a real shame that it only includes 6 contractions. It'd be an awesome resource if it included every contraction used in the Twinkl Contractions Word Mat!!

This simple set of contraction matching cards feature a selection of words and their corresponding contractions. Great for showing how letters are omitted, and helping your children to familiarise themselves with the different common contractions found in language and their original form.
This resource is available in Standard and Mixed Up Order.
