    possessive adjectives & pronouns

    Hi everyone, I am new to this forum. I've been sitting here in front of my computer for hours, and I couldn't think of an effective way to introduce possessive adjectives and pronouns to my 4th graders. Does anybody have any good ideas?? That would be very much appreciated!

    Re: possessive adjectives & pronouns

    I reckon the easiest way to do it is as if we are teaching a Latin based language.
    By now they should know as subject: I, you, he, she, it, we, they
    and the object: me, you, him, her, it, us, them
    From here, only the phonetic differences are important.

    CHANGING:
    me - my, you - your, he - his, etc

    Practise these by rote - the Japanese will love this. Go through it 100 times! Either around the class, or picking out individuals, especially if they
    have problems. 100 times me/my, etc - they will find it amusing, especially if you keep the pace going.
    Then let them practice their new found words in situation.
