Learning objective

Students will be able to use possessive pronouns to replace possessive nouns.


Students will help Zara fish for possessive nouns. They will also help the Garcia family shop for items by changing their names to possessive nouns (e.g., "Jasmine" to "her"). Possessive pronouns are important to keep writing and speech from becoming too repetitive and can show ownership of items even if the name is not known.


Students will be introduced to possessive pronouns, words that take the place of possessive nouns and show possession. They will see two ways to use possessive pronouns (e.g., "Trinity's book" could be expressed by "Her book" or "Hers.") Students will then go over two types of possessive pronouns: singular and plural. They will practice identify possessive nouns and replace them with possessive pronouns. They will help characters take possession of their items by assigning each character an item with the correct possessive pronoun. They will also practice when to use each type of possessive pronoun in sentences.


Students will review how to replace possessive nouns with possessive pronouns with 10 questions.


Have students recall the two types of possessive pronouns used. As a class, students will look at pictures and decide if the speaker says the correct possessive pronouns.
