All students in these groups received worksheet today that must be completed for homework.  The instructions are very clear and we went over the worksheet in all classes.  They are to re-write the passage correcting all contractions and possessives.  Basically, there should not be any word with an apostrophe in it.  They will need to re-phrase the sentences with possessives.
