Teaching Grammar: You're vs Your

Teaching Grammar: You're vs Your.
The apostrophe means it's a contraction of two words; "you're" is the short version of "you are" (the "a" is dropped), so if your sentence makes sense if you say "you are," then you're good to use you're. "Your" means it belongs to you, it's yours.
You're = if you mean "you are" then use the apostrophe
Your = belonging to you
You're going to love your new job!
