Google Slide | 1 page | Years: 5

Provide digital possessive noun practice activities for your learners with a Google Slides interactive activity.

What Are Possessive Nouns and Pronouns? 

By definition, possessive nouns and pronouns are any noun that shows possession or ownership. Possessive nouns are created by adding an ‘apostrophe + s’ (or in some cases, just an apostrophe) to the end of a noun, followed by the object being possessed. The concept of possessives is fairly straightforward, and most adults have no trouble grasping it. However, young learners often struggle with possessives more than any other grammatical concept.

This grammar resource is designed to give young learners the opportunity to practice and build skill with possessive nouns. They will drag and drop their way through 16 possessive noun practice questions on the way to possessive noun mastery.

What Are Examples of Possessive Nouns and Pronouns?

A team of dedicated, experienced educators created this resource to support your grammar instruction.
