Sometimes we can combine two words and turn it into one. If you push two words together, we call that a contraction. Often, when doing this we delete one or two letters and in their place we put an apostrophe. Test your knowledge on these contractions by spelling the missing words.

  1. ____ you want to taste the broccoli?
    The two words being contracted here are did and not.
  2. You ____ go to sleep without brushing your teeth.
    The apostrophe represents the missing letter - in this case, the 'o'.
  3. I ____ go in there if I was you.
    The words would and not are being combined here.
  4. I ____ believe my eyes.
    This means he watched the magic trick and he could not believe what he saw!
  5. ____ been a long day and ____ not ended yet!
    The first 'it's' represents the words it and has; the second 'it's' represents the words it and is.
  6. I ____ seen you in ages!
    For this one, the apostrophe replaces one letter.
  7. ____ going to go on a diet tomorrow!
    The word I'm is I and am squished together.
  8. Surprise! ____ going to be a bridesmaid!
    It's an honour to be a bridesmaid and usually means you are close friends or relatives with the bride.
  9. You ____ have another biscuit.
    We are pushing can and not together. The apostrophe is replacing the letters 'no'.
  10. If you don't do as I say ____ tell your mum.
    The first three words are homophones, this means they sound the same. I'll, isle and aisle are all pronounced the same way but mean different things.
