1. The teacher uses a HO in which there are six sentences. The students should choose the correct possessive form of the noun in each sentence. This aim of this exercise is to help students to distinguish the correct form of possessives- 's or s'. The students compare their answers in pairs. Then, the teacher asks some Ss randomly to read out their answers so that the teacher will circle the correct answer on the board. 2. The teacher changes the grouping pattern before having the Ss do the next activity. 3. The teacher asks the students to read a text ( reading handout ) and answer 5 questions. The questions have all been designed to focus students' attention on the possessive forms of the nouns. The students compare their answers with their partners and some Ss are asked by the teacher to come to the board and write the answers.
