Activity Instructions

Have a student begin on START HERE. Have them read the first two words that contract while jumping with two feet on the mat –one foot on each word. Then, have the student hop with one foot on the contraction and say the contraction out loud. Be sure that your student says the words and the contraction correctly. Tell them the words if they don’t know them. Continue alternating between two-footed jumps and one-footed hops to the end of the mat. Repeat the activity until the student is comfortable with all of the contractions.
