Possessive Adjectives & Pronouns

How do we show possession in English? Students will learn how to tell the difference between your and yours (and even you’re!) in our NEW lesson on Possessive Adjectives & Pronouns.

This 14-page lesson starts off with a clear, easy-to-follow grammar explanation that includes a side-by-side comparison chart of possessive adjectives and pronouns. Commonly confused words, such as your/you’re, its/it’s, and their/they’re/there are also explained. These grammar notes are followed by exercises such as fill in the blanks, complete the sentences, write the questions and answers, find the error, interview your partner, and a multiple-choice quiz.

Exercises start by practicing possessive adjectives and pronouns separately and end with mixed exercises to ensure your students fully grasp when to use each type. If mixing the two types is too difficult for your students, break the lesson up into possessive adjectives only and/or possessive pronouns only.

Find this lesson in the Grammar School – Basic Grammar Structures.
