    I tell the kids that they are surgeons about to perform surgery. I give them a surgical mask and scissors and they take turns coming up to the easel to make two words into one. (I give them two words "I am" and they post the first word...cut off the "a" and place the second altered word to the left of the apostrophe that is already on the easel) They think it's a blast and end up with great learning.
    Hope this makes sense.
