Lesson Plan Text

Possessives- Coin Drawing Game
Possessive adjectives and possessive -’s
Secretly choose one of the phrases below, flip a coin and complete the sentence with the 
possessive below depending on which side of the coin is top:
Heads = His
Tails = Her
Make sure your partner can’t see what you are doing. 

Then draw a picture which represents the whole sentence, e.g. a picture of a boy with a 
small T-shirt for 
“His T-shirt is small” or a girl with big ears for “Her ears are big”. If your 
partner can’t guess what the picture is, circle that picture then draw the opposite with 
crosses through it (a girl with a cross to show that it is 
“he” not “she”, a big T-shirt with a 
cross through it to show that you want 
“small”, etc).

________________________T-shirt is small
________________________car is fast
________________________ears are big
________________________eyes are big
________________________fingers are long
________________________glasses are shiny
________________________hair is curly
________________________hands are big
________________________hat is silly
________________________legs are short
________________________neck is long
________________________nose is big
________________________shoes are dirty
________________________suitcase is round
________________________trousers are short

Do the same, this time with your partner giving the person a name when they say the 
sentence:
Heads = Fred’s (= a boy)
Tails = Ann’s (= a girl)

Do the same for the pairs of possessives below, this time with a picture of yourself or a 
picture of your partner each time:
Heads = My
Tails = Your

Do the same with your own ideas. Write a sentence, flip the coin, then draw someone or 
something that matches that sentence and the side of the coin that came up.
