Apostrophe Showers Bring May Flowers

I absolutely can't take full credit for this super cute and creative idea. I got the idea and tweaked it a little from a talented teacher on the Second Grade Teacher's Club website. I don't think this teacher has a blog or website so I can't give her direct credit. Cute, right?? Oh, and yes I have a clock intruding on my bulletin board (ugh, don't ask!) ;)

P.S. There is a space in my garden because I'm waiting for an absent student to complete theirs. I'm very obsessive compulsive about things like that :x



The leaves have the 2 words before the contraction. Ex: would not and the flower has the contraction. Ex: wouldn't

Awesome! My team was just saying today that we needed to do more work with contractions... and it's so perfect since we're studying plants, too!

This is so cute and instructional too. We made clouds with regular words and then found three synonyms to hang on raindrops - word on one side of raindrop and the same sentence on each drop and cloud using the synonym. Some sentence structures required a bit of tweaking but they are so cool. This idea goes right along with those. Love word play and cutting and gluing too.
