My class made these Pinterest inspired (SHOCKER, I know) "Contraction Caterpillars" to display before parent teacher conferences. They were a huge hit and looked SO darn cute on our wall. I love how one is standing up and looks like the little caterpillar from "A Bugs Life"! Funny story, one my sweeties went home and told his parent he had made contraptions during grammar that day! Anywho these were super easy, just a oval for the face and each contraction and then two trapezoid shaped legs with root words for each contraction. Easy Peasy, soo darn cute, and a great reference to remind students= winning!
