Contraction Kites

I can’t take any credit for this cute idea for contractions.  I found it in an old mailbox magazine.  We have been focusing all week on contractions with not and we will be testing over this on our unit 4 test next week.  I thought this was a good, creative change for a lesson.  The kids really had fun making the kites.  I think their favorite part was being able to hang them over their seat.  I’m pleasantly surprised that no one had tried to swat at them. So far so good! 
If anyone has any cute ideas you use for contractions please share.  We seem to test over this skill a lot, so new ideas are always a plus.  I posted a link under the pictures for the kite patterns.
