Teach your students to use the correct forms of possessive nouns with an interactive teaching presentation.

Teaching Singular and Plural Possessive Nouns is Tough!

Teaching students the rules of possessive nouns can be a daunting task. Students are often confused by the complex grammar and unsure how to apply it correctly. This engaging and interactive presentation simplifies this tough grammar topic. It focuses on two rules: adding an apostrophe in the right place and determining when to use apostrophe s,  or just an apostrophe at the end of a noun.

Inside this presentation, you’ll find seventeen slides packed with instructional information, images, and many examples showing how to use s and ‘s correctly. This interactive presentation contains practice questions, opportunities for discussion, and quick formative knowledge checks throughout.

This teaching presentation and your teaching skills will teach your students 

  • what a possessive noun is
  • what a possessive noun does
  • when to use apostrophe s
  • when to use an apostrophe after s
  • how to use correct punctuation in singular and plural possessive nouns,

And a lot more! 

With beautiful images, helpful examples of possessives, and interactive slides, this lesson will simplify a difficult topic while teaching students how to use possessives with confidence.
