Apostrophes A and B

A worksheet was handed out in class today on apostrophes.  Side A covers the three main rules for using an apostrophe to show possession.  Side B covers possession without apostrophes, such as the pronouns "whose" and "their".  Both sides are due on THURSDAY, not Wednesday as originally assigned.  The students had big assignments in two or three other classes, so I moved our due date to Thursday. 

Please keep in mind the Friday deadline for our long-term project (needs to be half way done) and our persuasive essay. 

Wednesday's class will focus on the first half of the movie, "The Pearl."
