Apostrophes for contraction are used to show that you have omitted (left out) some letters when you are joining words together. I have highlighted in red where I have used an apostrophe for contraction such as:
I have lost my favourite writing pen.
I've lost my favourite writing pen.
I could not believe how beautiful the weather was yesterday.
