Possessive Nouns - PowerPoint and worksheets.

Join Clean Class TV and learn how to form possessive nouns using apostrophes!

Common Core Standards Covered:
L.1.1.b: Use common, proper, and possessive nouns.
L.2.2.c: Use an apostrophe to form frequently occurring possessives.
L.3.2.d: Form and use possessives.

Students work through the interactive PowerPoint slides with their whiteboards and learn the different rules that determine the correct formation of possessive nouns. This PowerPoint simplifies this challenging language topic, all you have to do is click and teach!

Also included are six printables (including a flip flap book) to further reinforce and consolidate the use of apostrophes when forming possessive nouns. The printables are perfect for literacy centers or to send home for extra review.

Teachers all over the world teach possessive proper nouns that end in -s differently (Chris changes to Chris’ or Chris changes to Chris’s). To cater for this difference I’ve created two PowerPoint and Printables sets. Set A (Chris’) and Set B (Chris’s). The sets are exactly the same except for the above-mentioned rule.

Included in your zip file:
Set A (Chris'):
37 Possessive Nouns PowerPoint slides
6 Possessive Nouns printables
Set B (Chris's):
37 Possessive Nouns PowerPoint slides
6 Possessive Nouns printables
