Homeschool Lessons: Singular and Plural Possessive Nouns

Possessive Nouns

The world of grammar can be confusing even for many adults. There are so many rules to remember, and when I was younger, there were no programs like Grammarly that autocorrected. This week we are focusing on singular and plural possessive nouns. Possessive nouns tell who or what has ownership of something.

Making a singular noun possessive is straightforward; add an apostrophe and an {s}. Likewise, add an apostrophe to the end when making a plural noun that ends in s possessive.

For plural nouns that don't end in s, add an apostrophe and {s} to the end.

I hope the infographic below gives you a clear understanding of positive nouns.

Lesson in Action

After introducing this lesson, I chose eight singular and four plural words. Then, I put them on the chalkboard and have her write the correct singular or plural possessive form. I also assigned a corresponding worksheet from our grammar workbook. Luckily this was a pretty quick lesson as she understood it quickly. The question now is whether she will retain the knowledge. To ensure retention, we have end-of-the-week reviews, and weekly writing prompts to reinforce what we've learned. Thanks for reading, and if you have any questions, feel free to reach out.
