English Grammar Charts explaining the difference between YOUR and YOU’RE.


YOUR vs. YOU’RE – English Grammar Charts

TWO English Grammar charts that help explain the difference between YOU’RE and YOUR in English.

In the first chart, it shows YOU’RE on the left and YOUR on the right with summaries below each one. The summary includes:

  • You’re is a contraction
  • You’re + Adjective
  • You’re + Verb-ing
  • Your is a Possessive Adjective
  • Your + Noun
  • Your doesn’t end in S when followed by a noun

The second chart has the question: “How can I remember the difference?”
There are two tips to help students know which to use correctly:

  • Can you replace YOUR with MY?
  • Can you replace YOU’RE with YOU ARE?

Both charts have example sentences.

We have also included a simple activity with 8 sentences/questions. Students need to fill the blank spaces correctly with either YOU’RE or YOU’RE. There is also an answer sheet for teachers.

These charts are aligned to Common Core State Standards:
CCSS L.4.1G Correctly use frequently confused words (e.g., to, too, two; there, their)
