´╗┐Sharmaine stands next to a wall touch screen. She is in her early-twenties, with brown hair in a ponytail. She wears a blue T-shirt with a print that reads "Home Work Zone."

She says HI TVO
KIDS.
IT'S TEACHER
SHARMAINE HERE.
SOMETIMES I GET
CONFUSED
AS TO WHICH IT
IT IS.
DO I USE ITS WITH
AN APOSTROPHE?
OR ITS WITHOUT
AN APOSTROPHE?
LET'S FIND OUT.
ONE WAY TO REMEMBER
WHICH IT TO USE
IN YOUR SENTENCES
IS TO REPLACE
THE WORDS WITH
IT IS OR IT HAS
IF IT SOUNDS RIGHT
THEN YOU'RE GOING TO
USE THE IT'S WITH
AN APOSTROPHE.
IF IT DOES NOT
SOUND RIGHT
YOU'RE GOING TO USE
ITS WITHOUT AN APOSTROPHE
BECAUSE IT MEANS THAT
IT'S THE POSSESSIVE ADJECTIVE.
MEANS THAT IT
BELONGS TO SOMETHING
LET'S GIVE IT
A TRY.

She clicks and a two-column table appears. The first column has blank spaces and the second one shows sentences with one word missing.

She continues HERE'S SOME
SENTENCES.
LET'S TRY THE
FIRST ONE
THE MOTHER CAT AND ITS
KITTENS ARE TAKING A NAP
DO I USE ITS WITH OR
WITHOUT AN APOSTROPHE
LET'S DO THE
TEST.
THE MOTHER CAT AND
IT IS KITTENS ARE TAKING A NAP.
THAT DOESN'T
SOUND RIGHT.
MUST BE THE ONE
WITHOUT AN APOSTROPHE.

She drags the answer to the first black space.

She continues LET'S TRY THE
NEXT ONE.

ITS FINAL GAME
LET'S REPLACE IT
WITH IT IS OR IT HAS
THE SOCCER TEAM WON

SOUND RIGHT.
MUST BE THE ONE

LET'S TRY
THE NEXT ONE.
MY TEACHER SAYS THAT ITS

LET'S REPLACE IT.
MY TEACHER SAYS THAT IT IS
IMPORTANT TO READ EVERY DAY.
YEAH THAT SOUNDS RIGHT.
MUST BE THE ONE
WITH AN APOSTROPHE.
"ITS TIME TO GO TO
SCHOOL" HIS MOM SAID
LET'S DO THE

She clicks and green ticks appear on the answers.

She concludes RIGHT ON,
