Hear It!

it's

Which Means:

The contraction of "it is."

As In:

Image "It's for you," he said sweetly, handing her the gift.

Heads Up!

The apostrophe in this word takes the place of the I in 'is'. A contraction is made up of two words, so when you want to say "it is", you can use the apostrophe to create one word!

Hear It!

its

Which Means:

A word that shows ownership, but not by a person.

As In:

Image The puppy stood near its mother.

Heads Up!

This possessive pronoun does not use an apostrophe the way "the girl's bike" or "the boy's shoes" do. It is just one word.
