Here's a hands-on, creative way for your students to practice identifying when to use the apostrophe before the -s or after the -s! This is an engaging activity where your students read sentences on a worksheet. They rewrite the underlined phrase as a possessive noun. Some of the words end with 's (girl's flower), and some of the words end with s' (girls' flowers). Then they copy their words on the correct popcorn pieces, and assemble the craftivity.The finished products make a unique bulletin board or fun school hallway display! It can also be used as a novel entry in an interactive notebook!

Student-friendly directions are included so that you can place the directions under your document camera, and students can refer to them as they complete the project. (An answer key is also included.)
