Your vs. You're

Your and you're are frequently confused by young writers. Help your child use them correctly by explaining the differences. Your is used to show possession. You're is a contraction for the combination “you are.” Take turns saying sentences that use either your or you're, and ask the other person to spell the correct usage of the homophone.
