Apostrophes to show belonging eg. Biff's Dog

A fun activity for apostrophes to show belonging (possessive apostrophes) is to post-it or sticker objects in a room - put a 5 minute timer on and see how many objects children can post-it, writing who the object belongs to on the post-it i.e. "Biff's book".

If their name ends in an s, you would usually write Thomas' without an extra s on the end.

Commas in a list - eg. I bought toilet roll, potatoes, pasta and tinned goods at the shops.

You could also make lists of things around the house such as toys, clothes, collections of things, food, friends etc. Don't forget that you always have 'AND' before the last thing on your list.
