Let's Use "Lets" Correctly, Shall We?

Lets/Let's Grammar Usage Tips from www.traceeorman.com

Students are never too old for reminders of common usage problem areas. "Lets" and "let's" are easily confused, so here is another chart you can use in your classroom (I promise the whole set and quizzes are coming soon!):

Use lets to mean “allows” or “permits.”
• My dad never lets me borrow the car.

Use let’s as a contraction of “let us.”
•  Let’s walk to class together.

If the word "allows" (or "permits") cannot be substituted in the sentence for "lets," then it is probably the contraction of "let us."

You can find this visual aid (without my blog tag), along with many more, 

If you'd like to purchase accompanying quizzes and activities, the bundle for all of them are here: 

Have a great weekend, friends!
