To play:

Arrange the cards face down all over the floor or table.

Player A goes first and chooses two cards, if they match, the player gets to keep the cards, if they do not, the cards are to be turned back over and the next player goes.

Continue playing until all the cards have been matched.

I added an element of self correction on each card for those students who may not yet know the contractions by heart.

The left side of each match contain the words that can be made into a contraction.  The right side of the card contains the contraction.  The picture in the middle is there for self-correction.  If the child is unsure if they have a match, he/she can look at the picture in middle; if the picture matches-- it is a match!
