Grammar homework due on Thursday 21st

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.

    This is correct because the car doors belong to the car.

    This would be incorrect because the car don’t belong to the doors.
    The dog’s ears
    This would be correct because the dog’s ears belong to the dog.
    The dogs ear’s
    This would be incorrect because the ears don’t own the dog.
    The hoveis’ bread

    The hoveis bread’s
    This would be incorrect because the bread don’t own hoveis.

  2. The reason why we don’t use apostrophes for some words is because some words end in s E.G James.
    If you use apostrophes correct you will be able to use them n sentences if you are writing someones name.

    Here are some examples:
    The gold rings hanged from the cow’s ears.
    The dog’s barked loudly.
    Mr bridge marked everybody’s books.

    Here are some bad examples:
    The gold rings hanged from the cows ears.
    the dogs barked loudly.
    Mr bridge marked everybodys books.
