PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Apostrophe Rules: This 38-slide PowerPoint is a step-by-step presentation that teaches students when to use apostrophes.

Students are taught 5 rules:
1. Apostrophes SHOULD be used in contractions.
2. Apostrophes SHOULD be used in words showing possession.
3. Apostrophes should NOT be used in plural words.
4. Apostrophes should NOT be used in absolute possessives (ours, hers, yours, etc.)
5. Apostrophes should ONLY be seen in "its" when it can be replaced with "it is".

After the 5 rules are introduced (and plenty of examples are given), there are 20 practice slides. Students are told to go on "apostrophe patrol" and to "catch the offending apostrophes" that are found in places that they shouldn't be found.

This file also includes a 2-page PowerPoint companion handout. Students can write on the handout as you progress through the PowerPoint.

This PowerPoint is fully animated so that you only advance when the teacher clicks the mouse.

Check out the preview! (But remember, the preview is in a PDF format, and the product is truly an interactive PowerPoint with full animation.)

This PowerPoint cannot be edited due to the copyright requirements made by the contributing artists (clip art, font, background).
