Using Apostrophes (Contractions) Worksheets

Related ELA Standard: L.2.2.C

Core Standard

An apostrophe is a punctuation mark that serves three basic purposes. Apostrophes are mostly used to indicate a level of possession such as in the sentence: That is Mark’s car. They can also be used for an omission of letters. Contractions were built on this. Words such as: can’t, we’ll, and shouldn’t are all formed with apostrophes. Apostrophes can also be used in a similar fashion for numbers. This happens often when we right dates such as: I was born in ’02. These worksheets help students understand the proper use of apostrophes.
