Do you want to practise using possessives in English? Play our grammar games and have fun while you learn.

Grammar Rule

Examples

I have a pen. My pen is red.
We have a car. Our car is fast.
She has a cat. Her cat is nice.

Remember!

I = my
he = his
you = your
she = her
we = our
it = its

Be careful!

The possessive adjective goes before the noun or before the noun and adjective.
I lost my pen.
She played football with her brother.
We met our new teacher.

We say... We don’t say...

I did my homework. (NOT I did the homework.)
She visited her grandma. (NOT She visited she grandma.)
My dog sleeps in its basket. (NOT My dog sleeps in it’s basket.)
