One thought on “Alfie the Apostrophe

  1. Mandy Robek

    This book gave a great visual for understanding how an apostrophe is used to omit letters in contractions My students really enjoyed the storyline of being nervous and trying something uncomfortable.

  2. Lauren Innes

    It s time for the annual punctuation talent show, and Alfie the Apostrophe is feeling anything but exclamatory, and actually quite questionable about whether or not he can pull off his act, which he s convinced won t even begin to compare to the exclamation point cheerleaders or the question mark pun stars After some internal struggle in regards to his ability to contract his skills and possess his performance, Alfie manages to top all the other punctuation and steal the show, as well as make so [...]

    Alfie the Apostrophe demonstrates ways to encourage students to not be afraid of a competition and think better of themselves Not only that it shows ways of how fear can be conquered, doubts can be overturned, but it also teaches lessons on punctuation Along from learning about apostrophes, other puncation marks are included This is a great start off book for students to read when they are being confused and are struggling about punctuations marks This gives me an idea of incorporating fun activ [...]

  4. Rebecca Murphy

    Alfie the Apostrophe is cute read with a lesson about the many different talents each of us has as an individual I thought this may be useful in teaching about possessive nouns, but this subject is not addressed until the end of the book It would be appropriate to use this to introduce contractions however, the focus does not seem to be teaching how to properly use apostrophes, so I would likely use this with children who already have a foundation of knowledge on the topic, but it s a cute and [...]

  5. Terry

    What a great way to help kids with punctuation The story is clever, each punctuation mark character is true to their personality, and kids get a chance to see them in action It was nice to have some history to the origins of the name, too I would like to have seen an appendix with a set of common words for kids to see, maybe with some hints to help kids remember.To read our full review complete with the kids opinions go to The Reading Tub.

  6. Hope Johnson

    This book was a great way to help children explore the different types of punctuation Each punctuation mark has a chance to perform and explain their purpose If children are having difficulty with punctuation this book would be a great book to read and make learning about the different punctuation marks a fun experience, while still helping them understand This book could also be acted out, allowing each child to chose a punctuation mark to explain to the rest of the class what they do.

  7. Sarah

    This book is a wonderful teaching tool to teach about the job of apostrophes and other punctuation marks It teaches why apostrophes are necessary and how they can be used in multiply ways It also emphasizes that commas and apostrophes are different This is a delightful short story that is sure to help any child enjoy learning about English.

  8. Nancy

    I used this book on a lesson about contractions In the book, Alfie is nervous because he doesn t think he will do well at the talent show He is having a hard time with one of his tricks Alfie steals the show with his magic tricks making contractions and possessives The kids seemed to enjoyed this book a lot Probably than I did

  9. Kelli Dana

    This book is wonderful for teaching children grammar, writing rules It is especially good for a grammar review of all the writing rules This book explains multiple grammar rules all in while are portrayed in a fun, child friendly story A good lead into a writing lesson great mini lesson center piece.

  10. Caroline Petty

    This is an entertaining book that uses legitimate information about what an apostrophe is along with other types of punctuation By creating a character out of the apostrophe, the reader is able to learn about punctuation while also having fun as the doubt Alfie feels about his talent show abilities is something that many children can relate to.

  11. Katie Hibbard

    This is a very cute and educational book for children, and would also be a great tool in the classroom Not only does it teach them how to use apostrophes and other punctuation marks it also teaches them the moral of being confident and being proud of what makes them different from anyone else Any child who is either learning about or confused about apostrophes should read this book.

  12. Shira Burns

    This book is a must have for classrooms It can be used in the classroom to put punctuation into perspective for young readers by making the punctuation marks characters that demonstrate their meaning through a school performance Even though this book focuses in on the use of the apostrophe, it also speaks on other punctuation marks.

  18. Sung Baick

    This is a fun book about the apostrophe and when to use it It s not all about the apostrophe but it does get the jist of it Towards the end of the book, it incorporates the other punctuation marks and briefly touches on how and when they re used I would use this for 1st 3rd grade.
