Engage your learners with a Google Interactive activity designed to build skill with possessive nouns.
What are Possessive Nouns?
By definition, a possessive noun is any noun that shows possession or ownership. These nouns are created by adding an ʼs or ʼ after a noun. The object being possessed then follows. The concept of possessives is fairly straightforward and most adults have no trouble grasping it. However, young learners often struggle with possessives more than any other grammatical concept.
This Google Slides Interactive activity is designed to give young learners the opportunity to practise and build skill with possessive nouns. They sort, write, click, drag, and drop their way to possessive noun mastery!
Through this activity, students will correctly use ʼs and sʼ to indicate ownership in their writing.
