How to use an apostrophe

We have been learning about how to use an apostrophe.

We know that the apostrophe is used for omission and possession.

Omission: this is when a word is a contraction. Two words have been put together and shortened. Can not = Can’t.        Do not = Don’t.

Possession: this is when the apostrophe is used to show that something belongs.

The boy’s coat.        The witch’s hat.
