Easy Spelling: Naughty Appo (It is/It’s) [Story]


Naughty Appo is a trouble maker punctuation. He likes jokes. Today he was in the park and saw Mr. It and Mr. Is… what joke did he pull on them?


~|Why not|~

When you teach your students the contraction  (It’s), ask them why they think it looks like this: what happened to the (i). Then you may tell them the story behind this contraction. (^^)
