Practicing contractions has never been more fun…or “delicious”! First, print out the double-scoop ice cream cone templates. Then, have students take three contractions they find the most troublesome to spell or use and write them on the cones. They should write the two words that make up the contraction on the scoops (one word on each). This fun activity turns “can’t” into “can,” and may be used as a colorful and handy display!
