Apostrophes bring words together to form contractions (could + not = couldn’t, is + not = isn’t) or indicate possession (Sally’s seashell, the lion’s mane). Remember that the exception to the possessive apostrophe rule is it. When you want to make it possessive, add an s but no apostrophe (“The dog found its ball under the hedge”). If you add an apostrophe, it becomes a contraction for it is (“It’s snowing outside”).
