The good punctuation fairy, sometimes known as the apostrophe, is on the job and we need to thank it for its daily hard work. What difference does a little bit of punctuation make? A great big difference. Take a look at these examples: See the boys bat. See the boy's bat. See the boys' bat. That little apostrophe changes the meaning of the sentence every time it changes its position in the word. That's a lot of power. Fun and funny way to introduce and reinforce the importance of good punctuation.
