Possessive Nouns Scoot!

We are working hard to master using apostrophes to make possessives. I think we will be working for quite awhile!
Today, I put a picture of each kiddo on their desk with some tablet paper. We took turns moving around the desks and writing a sentence with a possessive noun about the person in the picture.

Their last stop was a picture of me. I tried to hold as much as my arms could carry so that they would all have something funny to write about (including a cactus), but most of them wrote about my boots. Go figure.
(It's hard to see the little fellow because of the glare, but he's holding the chair up over his head!)

Thanks to all of you who entered my big giveaway. I'll be posting the winners tomorrow morning, so stay tuned.


  1. Cool idea, and so topical! We just started possessive nouns yesterday!

  2. What a great idea! I'll be trying this one.

  3. I love this idea! I think my students would have a lot of fun with it. Thanks!

  4. OMG! I'm cracking up at "Quincy's teeth look yellow."
    I can't wait to try this with my kiddos!
