Revision of contractions
Can you use an apostrophe to show the contraction?
For example can not beomes can't
did not =
has not =
could not =
I am =
I have =
Now write a sentence using each contraction.
Are these sentences correct?
Be the teacher today, find and fix any mistakes!
Its raining today?
the dog broke it's leg.
It's cold outside today
The cat lost its ball.
Revision of possessive apostrophes
Can you use an apostrophe to write the sentence in a different way
For example The ball of the boy becomes The boy's ball
The coat of the girl =
The leaves of the tree =
The bone of the dog =
Now use each one in a sentence. For example The boy's ball got stuck up in a tall, old and twisted tree.
Can you use each of these words in a sentence to show the difference
with and without an apostrophe?
For example: Show the difference between lady's and ladies
I saw the ladies talking in the street.
The ball rolled into the lady's garden.
baby's and babies
lorry's and lorries
city's and cities
puppy's and puppies
Can you think of some of your own?
