This 49-slide PowerPoint is a step-by-step presentation that teaches students when and how to use apostrophes in singular possessive nouns.
It begins with a comprehensive review of what a possessive noun is.
Then, there are several slides which focus on using an apostrophe-s to show possession. Students have an opportunity to differentiate between sentences that are showing possession (therefore requiring an apostrophe), and sentences that are NOT showing possession (therefore needing NO apostrophe).
Next, I take on that tricky rule that says that when possessive proper nouns end in -s, you only the apostrophe to show possession.
Finally, there are over ten practice slides where students choose which sentence is written correctly from a multiple choice list.
THIS POWERPOINT INCLUDES A COMPANION WORKSHEET. STUDENTS CAN RECORD THEIR ANSWERS AS THEY FOLLOW ALONG ON THEIR OWN WORKSHEET!
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 is part of a series of three PowerPoints that I created for my students!
