This week’s Literacy Focus is being delivered by one Mr Wickham from Maths.  Many thanks.

IT + IS = IT’S

IT + HAS = IT’S

ANYTHING ELSE = ITS

Examples

hollywood

breakfast

He ate his breakfast = no apostrophe.

berry

pancakes

She ate hers = no apostrophe.

puppy

The dog ate its breakfast = NO APOSTROPHE!

DON’T MAKE A DOG’S BREAKFAST OF THE APOSTROPHE!

Think you understand the difference? It’s time to prove it!

its-or-its

(Answers = its paw; it’s going; it’s time; its kittens; it’s going; it’s color [American spelling alert!]; it’s sunny; its name; it’s coming; it’s not and its box)
