Product Description
Why and how is a song about Possessives effective for students?

Using an apostrophe for possessive nouns is a skill that takes practice. The GrammarSong video “Possessives” demonstrates apostrophe usage in a simplified and direct way using common singular and plural nouns that follow typical grammar rules. Although many irregular single and plural nouns exist, this song can be used as a valuable tool to clearly illustrate how apostrophes are generally used to show possession in the English language. The multi-leveled activities take the skill into more advanced levels for practice and instruction.

Great! What related activities are included with the video?

Use the information presented within the sheets to model sentences on a whiteboard or smart board to create a whole class lesson. Cut the sheet apart, gluing the related answers from the answer key on the back to use within a cooperative learning structure or as a self-checking center activity.

Contraction or Possessive? & Contraction Versus Possessive:
Differentiate apostrophe usage between contractions and possessives. Use the information presented in the grammar sheets within a cooperative learning structure or class lesson on the whiteboard or smartboard. Cut apart the sentences, and paste the answer key back-to-back to create a self-checking learning center or partner activity.

Hands-On Contractions or Possessives:
Print out and play in small groups, as a center, or with partners. For a bonus, use the self-checking game cards with a simple game board and die for an instant learning game.

Evaluating Apostrophe Usage:
To emphasize the apostrophes are never used simply to create a plural noun. Notice and discuss apostrophe usage when reading in real literature or in textbooks (within any subject area). When students see apostrophes when reading, encourage them to note whether the apostrophe is being used because of a contraction or because of a possessive.
