Contractions (Ex # 2)
Based on Bunny Rabbit's Diary
by Mary Frances Blaisdell

    An apostrophe is used to indicate that letters have been left out. This usually happens when two words are combined into one. The resulting word is called a "contraction." For example, "it's" is a contraction of "it is."



Directions: In the following sentences, underline the verbs twice and their subjects
once.  After each sentence, write the full form of the contraction. (For example, if the contraction is "I'm," write "I am.")

1. I donít want that now.

2. Itís too cold.

3. Iíll never go in there again.

4. Iím out.

5. I donít like to stay in this yard all the time.
