We have been looking at the two uses of apostrophes in English. These can be used as contractions, where they replace a letter or group of letters within a word or as a possessive. A possessive links an object to a subject and there are different rules for singular and plural. We would like the children to create a sheet, either as a post or on paper, explaining apostrophes for possession in detail. We do not want the children to look at contractions as we have done this in class.
We would like the children to give examples of when the apostrophe is used correctly but also give examples where it is not and then explain why.
