The apostrophe

Synonyms

Activity 1

To work with the apostrophe [lo 6.2.8]

In the poem JUST ME in Module 12, you will notice that the apostrophe has been used quite often.

It shows the two reasons for using the apostrophe very well:

1. to shorten words 2. to show possession

See if you can use the apostrophe correctly in the exercises below.

  • Put the apostrophe in the correct place.
Couldnt Theyll Isnt Shes Youre Couldve
  • Write these words in contracted form
  • I am
  • Let us
  • He is
  • We will
  • Write these shortened words in full
  • What’s
  • We’re
  • He’ll
  • Won’t

Now take a careful look at the illustrations and place the apostrophe in the correct place to show WHO owns the goodies.

the girls dogs

the ladies bags

the boys pencils

the mens hats
