This Spell it Write! (Homophone, Possession & Contraction) Responsive Reader is designed to help your students learn how to correctly use two words that are often misused (your and you’re) in a FUN, hands-on way.
The book begins with a mini-lesson on homophones, possession and contractions. This part of the book is best done with you leading…to ensure your students understand the terms and how they apply to “your” and “you’re”.
Next, they will read engaging, yet predictable text missing the words “your” and “you’re”. There are pictures on each page that enhance the text. Your students will cut apart, unscramble and glue the letter tiles to correctly spell “your” and “you’re” in the space provided on the first four sheets. (Since the “re” in “you’re” sounds the same as “r”, these letters are together on a single tile. This will encourage your students to read the text carefully to discern which word tiles are needed for each grouping).
The next four sheets they will try their hand at writing “your” and “you’re” as prompted by the word shapes. In this section the word choice is more obvious (the word shape gives it away), but the skill desired here is your students writing the words correctly.
They will finish their book unscrambling the last sentence; gluing it in order; and writing it on the lines provided.
