Homophones: Your and You're.

a) Your and you’re are homophones. Why are they homophones?

Because they sound the same but they have different meanings and there spelt differently.

b) Explain IN YOUR OWN WORDS! (no copy and pasting) when should we use your and when should we use you’re?

You would use you're when you want to say you are. You would use your when you want to say your but it won't say you are.

c) Write 3 example sentences using your and 3 example sentences using you’re. These sentences should be about YOU and your life and not be copied and pasted.

1. Is that your ice-cream? 2. Are your friends coming to? 3. What are your best skills?

1. You're coming to the game right? 2. You're my best friend. 3. You're very smart you know.

d) Write 2 sentences OF YOUR OWN which contain both your and you’re.

1. You're coming in your car aren't you.

2. You're going to the park with your other friend?
