| | Re: Do you have problems teaching "possessives?" Check out this activity.
At first my students couldn't get it too.
I had a huge copy of it pasted on the wall.
After we did the Jack version of the poem:
(Jack has a toy
The toy is for Jack
It is Jack's toy
The toy is Jack's)
They completely understood it and helped me to explain the possessives to lower level students.
And yeah you are right, in schools where they target just exams, it's hard to get them to look at some other language areas that don't really show up in the exams.
Good luck mate!
