WALT: Use apostrophes for contractions
In English writing, the apostrophe is used for demonstrating possession and when writing contractions. Today’s activity focuses on using the apostrophe for contraction – when two words have been shortened and one or more letters have been omitted.
They’ve is the contraction of they have.
In this example, they have has been contracted to make one word. The apostrophe demonstrates where letters have been omitted.
Please ensure when using apostrophes in contractions that the apostrophe in the correct position, i.e. exactly between the letters where the omission has occurred.
For example, in the contraction he’d (he would or he had) the apostrophe falls between the ‘e’ and the ‘d’. If the apostrophe is placed above the e or the d, this would be incorrect usage of the apostrophe.
Rewrite the following sentences with the contracted forms.
