6F – Contracted Words

In Literacy, we have been learning about contracted words. These are words which have been made up of two words. There is always an apostrophe and some letters are removed.

We found lots of contracted words which we use very frequently:

  • There is > there’s
  • we are > we’re
  • did not > didn’t
  • I will > I’ll
  • I am > I’m
  • could have > could’ve

Challenge: Can you find any more contracted words?
