Apostrophes for Possession

October 12, 2017

Apostrophes for Possession
We have been looking at using apostrophes to show possession.

For example, the football that belongs to Harpo is Harpo’s football.

If I said that Sehr’s handwriting is excellent, I would use the apostrophe before adding an s.

TAKE CARE! Do not start using apostrophes whenever a word ends in s because often these are just either plurals (when there is more than one item) or present tense verbs.
– The dogs are very friendly – No apostrophe is needed here.
– My cat is so awesome he gets treats all the time – No apostrophe here either.

Blog below to show me that you can use apostrophes. I will award 1 team point for every correct example you give, up to 5 points each.
