Teaching contractions!

Teaching contractions
Would you like to help your child avoid some of the most common errors in written English?
I’m talking about the misuse of contractions, especially when it comes to words like it’s vs. itsand you’re vs. your.
I’m sure you’ve seen these mistakes; maybe they’ve even made you cringe.
