This week we have been learning to use apostrophes for contractions. Don’t forget to put the apostrophe in the correct place! You wouldn’t want to get it wrong. Let’s be smart about it!

I’ll don’t you’re couldn’t

haven’t wouldn’t shouldn’t hasn’t

they’re aren’t let’s

hadn’t she’s he’s

Can you use each of these words in a sentence? Can you think of any more examples?
