Default Re: Do you have problems teaching "possessives?" Check out this activity.

No it is not stupid. It doesn't sound well but the sentence structure is correct
It will help your students see and understand the difference between "It's" = "It is" and "Its" = the ... of...

It has a toy
It is its toy
The toy is for it
The toy is its

NB: The possessive "its" doesn't have an apostrophe btween the t and the s.

Crazy English grammar!
