An interactive card game for students to play when consolidating their understanding of apostrophes of possession.
This card game has been designed to consolidate your students’ understanding of the apostrophe of possession, as well as developing their higher order thinking skills. Perfect for use during English Language Arts group rotations!
Print out and laminate copies of the score sheets and accompanying playing cards. This will allow for repeated use.
Students must take turns to create a phrase by flipping over a People card, an Apostrophe card, and an Object card. They must discuss and decide whether the phrase created makes logical sense. For example, the phrase ‘my uncles’ hat’ does not make logical sense, as it is highly unlikely that many uncles would share one hat. However, the phrase ‘the woman’s car’ does make logical sense, as one woman is likely to own one car.
The first player to create three logical phrases (after both players have had an equal number of turns) is the winner!
More comprehensive instructions on how to play the game are included in the resource.
