Possessive Apostrophes
Ws/L2.4
Punctuate sentences correctly, and use punctuation
accurately (e.g. apostrophes).
Understand the use of the apostrophe to show where a
final –s indicates that something belongs to
someone/thing.

I am attaching some apostrophe cards (possession) that I laminate
and use with students. This is quite a difficult topic for most
students and seeing it visually can help.

Teaching ideas
1. Matching
Mix up the cards.
Issue students with 1 or 2 cards each (depending on the size of
the class).
Students to move around and find their match.
2. Snap
Issue students with the picture cards.
Hold up the text cards.
Students to check if they have the match.
