Lots of people get confused about the spelling of it's and its. It's really quite simple. Remember, the means there is a contraction. Two words have been put together to make one word, and the is placed where one or more letters have been taken out.
For example- she + is = she's. And does + not = doesn't.
So- It's = it + is or sometimes It's = it + has (you will know by the context which one it is.)
Now how about its? This is a possessive. Remember that a possessive is a word that shows who or what owns something.
For example- This is the girl's coat. This is her coat.
Or- Joey and Melissa's friend is here. Their friend is here.
So- The book's pages are green. Its pages are green.
