Punctuation: Using apostrophes for possession
The emphasis of this resource is on working orally, so that pupils can see themselves as owners and understand what the apostrophe, in this context, is communicating. The final activity recaps on the use of the apostrophe to signal a missing letter and provides an entertaining game encouraging pupils to make a distinction between the apostrophes of possession and contraction. Throughout the lesson, the emphasis is on collaborative learning, with pupils comparing their answers and justifying their conclusions.
