(Can't Ready My) Contractions

Tune: "Poker Face" by Lady Gaga

Adapted by: Jim Duey

Skill: Writing with APostrophes to Show Contraction

 

Ah-pos-tro-phes! Show con-trac-tion

Ah-pos-tro-phes! Show con-trac-tion Ah-pos-tro-phes!

 

I want to smush a word when I write an essay,

It needs to look just right, so we'll know just what you say.

                                                     (Contractions)

 

I have two small words I want to combine from the start,

Remove a letter, put a mark there, that'll show the part-

 

I've, You'd, Won't, It's    I've, You'd, Won't, It's.

I'll write the mark, you'll know what I've got.

I've, You'd, Won't, It's    I've, You'd, Won't, It's.

I'll write the mark, you'll now what I've got.

 

Apostrophe's in the Word I write

Tune: "Party Rockers in the House Tonight"

Adapted by: Jim Duey

Skill: Writing with Apostrophes to Show Possession

 

Apostrophes!

Yeah!     Woo!

Let's Write!

 

Apostrophes in the words I wrote

Show the reader that I own the red kite

__No way I have more than~ one light

Show the reader that I own the red kite

 

Apostrophes in the words I write

Show the reader that I own the red kite

__No wayI have more than~ one light

Show the reader that I                                  own that!

 

Ryan's club, summer's rock

Emma's brown curl,

Eastland's boardwalk...

Leads you right to Pricilla's gift shop!

Karley's birthday-

I got writer's block!
