Possessive Nouns

Possessive nouns are used to indicate ownership. 1. Possessive nouns usually are formed by adding an apostrophe (') and s. Joy's book Summer's car Carlo's mirror 2. When a noun is plural and ends in s, just add an apostrophe ('). The kids' playroom My parents' vacation house The teachers' lounge 3. If two people own one thing, add the apostrophe and s to the second person only. Joy and CJ's new house David and Anne's wedding Tom and Carla's car 4. If two people own separate things, add the apostrophe and s for each person. Cristine's and Ali's books Jean's and John's pants Ben's and Jerry's offices

Review each sentence and decide if it needs a possessive noun or a plural noun, then choose the correct form. 1. The dogs/dog's collar is blue. 2. Aaron's/Aarons friend is named Adam. 3. I really like my moms/mom's cookies. 4. I really like to drink soda using spiral straws/straw's. 5. My brothers/brother's are twins.
