there/their/they're
 is so easy

e-r-e like there's a tree!

possessive uses e-i-r,

apostrophe means they are!

 

a lot is two words, don't you know?

allot some study time so you can grow.

 

say def-init-ely to remind yourself

that definitely is easy to spell:

d-e-f !

in it !

e-l-y !

 

your possession does not require an e,

but to say you are, use an apostrophe.

 

just one 'o' to go to school,

to talk to your teachers or to break a rule.

but too many or too much needs one more --

too many 'o's can be a bore.
