I Can Write Apostrophes for Singular Possession
Unit 2: Module 7: I Can Write Apostrophes for Singular Possession
(See also How to use Apostrophes for Singular Possession for an explanation of the use of apostrophes for singular possession)
This punctuation workbook features writing challenges for using apostrophes for singular possession. See I Can Write Apostrophes for Missing Letters for a resource to explain how to use apostrophes for omission.
Each method of punctuation is introduced progressively and explained with simple step-by-step guidance for teachers.
The workbook includes a series of twenty ’challenge sheets’ that feature some ‘unpunctuated’ text for students to rewrite with the appropriate punctuation.
The texts use age appropriate spellings and are based on the theme of ‘Mermaids & Water Monsters’ to encourage creative thinking and writing.
Every challenge sheet features additional challenges related to the text to stimulate the imagination and consolidate learning.
A ’Sentence Check’ sheet is provided for students to check their own work and to check the work of a peer.
An editable Powerpoint file is included featuring every unpunctuated text. Use these to demonstrate solutions and play with alternative methods of writing and punctuating the sentences (or challenge students to have a go themselves).
Includes guidance to punctuation in the National Curriculum for England in Year 2
