See if you can shorten the words below, using an apostrophe:
can not =
should not =
did not =
would not =
will not =
Apostrophes for Possession
This is where we use an apostrophe to show that something belongs to someone/ something e.g. the car that belongs to Samantha = Samantha’s car.
See if you can add the apostrophes in the right places in the text below:
