Dyslexics find simple English gramma well…not so simple. See if this helps you out.

Nouns are names of things, people or places, like ‘picture’, ‘Catherine’ or ‘London’.

Adjectives describe things, people or places, like ‘wavy’, ‘hard ‘ or ‘hot’.

Adverbs describe the way something happens, like ‘carefully’, ‘always’ or ‘tomorrow’.

Pronouns are short words like ‘it’, ‘she’, ‘he’, ‘you’, ‘we’, ‘they’, ‘us’, ‘them’, used instead of names.

Words like ‘and’, ‘so’ or ‘because’ connect phrases together into longer sentences.

Verbs are doing words, like ‘to eat’, ‘laugh’, or ‘sleep’.

Take extra care when spelling words which sound similar (homophones), like ‘their’ and ‘there’ ‘witch’ and ‘which’.

Use the ‘apostrophe’ to show possession. To show possession with a singular noun, add an apostrophe plus the letter ‘s.’

A woman’s dress
The boss’s pen
Mrs. Smith’s house

Hope this helps
