Apostrophe Worksheets, Games and Activities

Free worksheets, interactive activities and other resources to support teaching and learning about apostrophes.

An apostrophe can be used to mark missing letters where two or more words have been 'contracted', for example do not becomes don't.

Possessive apostrophes are used to show where one thing or group belongs to another. Where the thing or group belongs to a singular noun or an irregular plural, the apostrophe goes before the s. For example, Jack's tie, the car's wheel, Mr. Smith's house.

Where the group or thing belongs to a regular plural (ending in s), the apostrophe goes after the s. For example, the girls' books (books belonging to a group of girls), the cows' field (the field belonging to a group of cows).
