Our Apostrophes lesson plan sharpens both writing skills and reading comprehension by demonstrating how to identify and use apostrophes in writing, including possessives, contractions, and for other uses. Students will engage in collaborative learning and sensory stimulation by working in pairs and moving around the classroom to complete the activities. Students are asked to use their critical thinking skills to determine why apostrophes are so important and what issues would come up if they didn’t use them in their writing. Students will also practice their public speaking skills as they share their responses with the class.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to identify and use apostrophes in their writing, including possessives, contractions, and for other uses.
