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

Well, for students who are not familiar with these words I use this poem as a kind of introduction. They memorize without necessaily understanding the details of how each of them works. One of the first things they get hold of is how to position these words in a sentence. That's a good start for them. For higher level students the poem helps in consolidating what they already know about these words. But I have never tried a translation. I think that won't help them much.
