  2. 2. Possessives<br />
  3. 3. A possessive noun shows possession of one noun by another.<br />To create a possessive form from a singular noun, add an apostrophe plus s (’s) to the end of the noun.<br />Example: <br />The boy’s book <br />The word “boy’s”is the possessive noun. It tells you that the noun “book”belongs to the boy. <br />Example: The dog’s collar<br />The word “dog’s” is the possessive noun. It tells you that the dog possesses the collar.<br />
  4. 4. The dogs bowl is red.<br />The dogs’ bowl is red.<br />The dog’s bowl is red.<br />Which sentence uses a possessive noun correctly?Assume that there is only ONE dog.<br />
  5. 5. cat’s<br />ball<br />rolled<br />Which of the words in this sentence is the possessive noun?The cat’s ball rolled.<br />
  6. 6. If you formed the plural by adding an “s” on the end of the word, you add only an apostrophe (’) after the final “s.”<br />When the possessive noun is plural (more than one), the rule is different.<br />Example:<br />The boys’ basketball<br />Example:<br />The kids’ carousel<br />If two or more boys share a basketball, then you form the possessive by adding the apostrophe to the end of the plural “boys.”<br />If two or more kids share a carousel, then you form the possessive by adding the apostrophe to the end of the plural “kids.”<br />
  7. 7. Which sentence uses a possessive noun correctly?<br />Assume that there are several athletes.<br />The athletes’ ball went out of bounds.<br />The athletes’s ball went out of bounds.<br />The athlete’s ball went out of bounds.<br />
  8. 8. If the plural noun is an “irregular plural,” use the same convention as for a singular noun.<br />Form the possessive of an irregular plural noun by adding apostrophe plus s(’s) . <br />Example: The children’s marbles<br />“Children” is a plural noun, but you form the possessive by adding ’s.<br />Example: Women’s clothing<br />“Women” is also a plural noun. You form this possessive by adding ’s also.<br />
  9. 9. The geese’s goslings were the color of new grass.<br />The geeses goslings were the color of new grass.<br />The geeses’ goslings were the color of new grass.<br />Which sentence uses a possessive noun correctly?<br />
