Possessive apostrophes 

Using apostrophes with possessive nouns commonly causes confusion. 

Here are a few rules of thumb:

Singular nouns: 
Add apostrophe + s 
Ex: The writer’s desk

Plural nouns: 
Add only an apostrophe
Ex: The students’ backpacks 

Plural nouns that do not end in s: 
Add apostrophe + s
Ex: The children’s toys

Plural proper nouns that end in s: 
Add only an apostrophe
Ex: The Smiths’ vacation
