Hear It!

they're

Which Means:

The contraction for the two words "they are."

As In:

Image They're close in the swimming race--who will win?

Heads Up!

The apostrophe in this word takes the place of the A in 'are'. A contraction is made up of two words smushed together with a letter taken out and replaced by the apostrophe. So when you want to say "they are", you can use the apostrophe and make one word out of two!

Hear It!

there

Which Means:

A place that is away from where the speaker stands.

As In:

Image How will I get from here to there?

Heads Up!

This word, like 'here', shows a place. When you want to show 'over there', spell this word with a T!
