    • Possessive Apostrophe
  • Apostrophe
    • Used to announce possession
    • Mark possession with an apostrophe AND an “-s”
    • Test possession by reversing it:
    • Sara’s coat OR The coat of Sara.
    • Examples
      • Michael’s hand
      • The cat’s fur
      • The school’s books
  • Apostrophe
    • If the original ends in an “-s” because it is plural, just put an apostrophe.
    • Examples
      • The 3 cats’ fur NOT The cats’s fur
      • The many schools’ books NOT The schools’s books
  • Apostrophe
    • Used for contractions
