This unique activity uses a trip through the solar system to practice subjects!
Here is what the Sun and each planet/moon represents:
1. Sun- Subject of Sentence (nouns & pronouns)
2. Mercury- Singular- (one person, place, thing, or idea)
3. Venus - Singular Possessive
4. Earth - Simple Subjects
5. Moon - Compound Subjects
6. Mars - Plural (more than one person, place, thing, or idea)
7. Jupiter - Plural Possessive
8. Saturn - Pronoun
9. Uranus - Pronoun Possessive
10. Neptune - Proper Noun! Underline! Capital!
Two examples each are given for subjects that are people, places, things, and ideas.
As it mentions in the directions, it is important to do something to represent apostrophes when saying the words out loud. I recommend tossing a real or imaginary ball in the air at the position in the word that represents and apostrophe.
For singular possessive, you would say the singular word while holding up one finger to represent singular, then toss the ball as you say apostrophe (UP-Postrophe!) then say s or at least the s sound.
For plural possessive you would say the plura word while holding up and wiggling all five fingers to represent plural, then toss the ball and say apostrophe (UP-Postrophe!), then only say s if the plural form of the word did not have an s.
An example of that would be men's or mice's.
