Using Words Correctly 1

beaver

Some words are easy to mix up. Watch out for these:

  • its, it's: Its shows ownership. It's means "it is" or "it has."

    It's not uncommon for a beaver to cut through a tree with its teeth.

  • their, they're, there: Their shows ownership. They're means "they are." There refers to location.

    If you look over there, you will see beavers gathering wood for their dam. They're working hard.

  • to, two, too: To shows movement toward something. Two means "2." Too means "very" or "also."
