Using Apostrophes (Power Point)

This power point demonstrates how to use apostrophes of both omission (to show missing letters) and possession (to show belonging.)

I designed this resource for use with FE students ( Levels 1 and 2), but it could also be used with secondary school-aged learners, strong Entry 3 students, and some older primary-aged children.

Slides 6-30 act as a manual ‘stop- motion’ video to visually demonstrate how omissive apostrophes are used (click to change slides at an accelerated pace to achieve this effect.)

The presentation also references other aspects of English, including using formal/informal language and pronouns.
