  5. Possessive Nouns or Contractions?

What is the difference between "Kevin's" and "he'll"? The first apostrophe (Kevin's) represents possession, and the second (he'll) stands for contraction. There is a delicate line that students tread while using contractions at their pleasure. The idea is to carefully discern if the word is a real contraction or not. Just because there's an apostrophe doesn't necessarily mean the word is a contraction. In this free printable worksheet, kids read each sentence and write if it contains a contraction or possessive form.

This pdf worksheet is most appropriate for students in 1st grade, 2nd grade, 3rd grade.
