Possessive Nouns

This game is a wonderful resource to reinforce the skill of writing a noun as a possessive!

Possessive nouns are nouns that show ownership. That doesn’t seem too hard to teach, right? But when you add in the elements of singular and plural nouns and nouns that already end in ‘s’, it can get a bit tricky. Students need quite a bit of practice to keep all of the rules straight! This resource is the perfect literacy groups activity to do just that!

The download comes with a complete set of instructions, a game board, an answer page, dot cards and a student recording sheet!
