Reflection: Checks for Understanding Singular Possessive Nouns - Section 3: Assessment


My students often use the apostrophe to form plural nouns. I have no idea where they could have gotten this! It’s an ingrained habit that I address regularly. I have taken to telling them that there are only two occasions when they should use an apostrophe and that is when forming contractions and possessive nouns. I try to stay away from relaying hard and fast rules as there are often exceptions. However, I can’t think of any at this time and I hope I am not misguiding them.
