Grade Levels: K-3

These family and homeschool activities are designed to complement the Possessive Nouns topic on BrainPOP Jr.

Personal Property

Walk through your home together and identify different items together. Who does the item belong to? Encourage your child to answer the question in a complete sentence and make a label to hang up near the item. “This is my parents’ room.” Have your child underline all possessive nouns. Make sure you check for proper spelling and punctuation.

Say It Again, Sam

Write a sentence and read it together out loud, such as “The paws of the dog are big.” Have your child rewrite or retell the sentence using a possessive noun: “The dog’s paws are big.” This activity will help your child learn how sentences can be written in different ways as well as practice forming possessive nouns. How might using a possessive noun make sentences clearer or simpler? You may want to challenge your child by writing a sentence with two possessive nouns: “Moby’s dog’s collar is gone!”
