These activity sheets will teach your students how to identify and construct possessive pronouns.

These words form are used to establish a form of ownership and show who or what belongs together. In almost all cases, this word replaces the noun in the sentence. Students with often not be able to tell the difference between a contraction and a possessive but serve a completely different purpose. First off contractions contain an apostrophe. Remind your students that contractions take the place of two distinct words. The best way to check yourself is to see if both words are required, then the contraction fits the sentence. Possession can take on two forms: absolute and weak. The absolute pronoun form does not modify a noun and is thought to be factual. The weak form always follows the noun. Both singular and plural pronouns can be possessive.

The following collection of worksheets will help your students learn about possessive pronouns. Make sure your students understand that these words do not require an apostrophe. Activities include rewriting sentences to replace selected words with the correct pronoun, identifying word forms within a sentence, rewriting sentences, replacing word forms, matching possessive with their replacement pronouns, and more.
