    I saw this at a conference this summer. Take a long sentence strip or paper and write out a long version of a contraction. For example: is not. Then fold the paper in the middle so the omitted letter(s) are not seen and only "isnt" shows (not the "o"). Open and close the paper by refolding it and show the children that the word is shorter by leaving out some letters and longer when both full words are there. I hope I explained it clearly enough.
