By the end of this activity you will be able to: Join two words together to create a contraction

We can join two words by putting the words together and missing out some of the letters. Where letters have been missed out to join two words together, we use an apostrophe.

For example, the words do and not can be made into one word by missing out the o in not. The o is replaced by the apostrophe -> don't. We can also join "is" to another word by missing out the "i" and replacing it with an apostrophe.

Read each of the following sentences carefully. Select the shortened form of the words and click the "Submit" button to check your work.
