Apostrophes: how to use apostrophes to show possession Apostrophes: how to use apostrophes to show possession

** On the preview some text looks to be hidden, once downloaded itīs all there! I double checked :-) Having messed up recently with my own misunderstanding of the correct way to use an apostrophe to show possession. I thought I had better brush up. :-) This covers the basics for an elementary to intermediate level. Of course there are exceptions and some other not so common uses, (when names end in S, plurals of numbers etc...) regarding possession, there seems to be two schools of thought and both are correct. I did not include names or nouns that end in S so it leaves it open to you on which way you want to teach that to your pupils. For example Carlosī pencil case. Carlosīs pencil case. (In fact my spell checker says no to the second variant!) I personally in NZ and UK teach the first one. But the second one is also accepted in different places around the world. I decided to stick to the main ways. I will have one on how an apostrophe is used for contractions later on.
