Beginner level


In this lesson , Ss will learn about possessive ‘s through guided discovery based on showing flashcards of people and some information about them. They will try to figure out possessive ‘s through sentences such as Ben’s favorite color is black to differentiate possessive ‘s and ‘s for “is” This is followed by reading passage and gap-fill exercise to check if they understand.
