Contraction Crash!

So, I told everyone on our Facebook page that I went bowling with my 83 year old grandma {and the rest of my family} and she *ROCKED* it!  She's seriously amazing.  We lost our grandpa less than a month ago and today would have been his 84th Birthday.  We knew that bowling would cheer her up and my grandpa is looking down thankful that we are taking care of her!

Top left is my grandma and niece.  Bottom left is me and my sister!



On another note... WE've been BUSY in class! :)  We just learned about contractions in my classroom and I always introduce it with the *CONTRACTION CRASH*!

How totally fun is that!! love, love, love.. My husband's grandma is 90 and is just like that. She acts like she is in her 60s or so. I don't have any grandparents still alive, so enjoy those fun times. ~Molly

Ok that is the cutest contraction unit ever! Anything with "crash" is a boy magnet-pure genius!
What a lovely tribute to your grandpa. I'm sure he was beaming watching all this ladies bowl. So sweet!

This is such a cute idea! I always do a contraction machine. The students get to make fun "machine" noises while the two words are being smashed together to make a contraction!

LOVE this idea of contraction crash!! My boys will be overjoyed that they have permission to crash stuff!

So fabulous that you have your Gram's around and are able to have such a fun evening with her! Loved the pics!

This is adorable Rachelle! I teach contractions with a train crash and my kiddos love it too!

I love the bowling with your Grandma. What a precious memory that will always be. =)
