Hello teaching friends,
If you’re anything like me you are getting a bit tired! It’s already the middle of April and my students are getting a little restless. Not in the bad sense, they just need to move a bit more and they are so eager to learn new things.
Luckily, I had the pleasure of trying out a brand new resource from Laura Candler. This resource not only helped me to teach my students whether something was plural or possessive but it did it in such a fun way, the kids LOVED it!
Now it was time for CLASS SHOWDOWN! What a fun game! I used the little task cards provided. I read the sentence aloud and students were asked to write whether it was possessive or plural. After they wrote either PL or PS on their whiteboards, they turned them over. I had fun saying SHOWDOWN! Students turned their boards over and raised them over their heads as I called out the correct answer.
I really enjoyed teaching this easy peasy lesson. Kids were engaged and learning was active – just what I needed this week. Thanks Laura Candler for putting together such a fantastic and thorough lesson. If you’d like to pick this lesson up for your class, you can visit Laura’s shop and check it out by clicking here.
Thanks for stopping by this evening!

Thanks for the terrific review! I'm glad your students enjoyed this activity and learn how to tell plurals apart from possessive nouns!
