How to teach Possessive Pronouns (His & Her)

Possessive Pronouns

Toddlers or children with slow language grasping powers often face difficulties in distinguishing (He & She) pronouns. Some children call everyone “He” or everyone “She” despite their genders, same goes with “His” & “Her” or some children even have their own ways of creating a new form of grammar ūüėÄ so they intend to omit all of these pronouns out of English grammar entirely.¬†
Well no matter how your child is changing it, it gets very difficult to keep up with his/ her train of thought until you are fully aware what he or she is exactly talking about. 
For all the homeschooling moms and teacher I am listing down some of the real affective ways to help you out with this difficulty. 

1. Knowing the difference between a boy and a girl:

Not being able to understand the difference between a boy or girl might come up as a hurdle in getting to know personal pronouns in the first place. Start by pointing onto pictorial representation of a boy or girl and ask “Is it a boy or girl”. Try using animated or¬†cartooned pictorial representations as they are more defining than actual people, practice this until your child is fully aware.

2. Choose the correct Possessive Pronoun:

It may be helpful to start of by reviewing examples within the sentences before  jumping on practicing it. Make sure your child is aware about the possessions belongs to whom that you are about to share in your speech or during practice.
1. This is (His or Her) book.
2. There are (His or Her) pencils.
3. Those are (His or Her) shoes.

3. Try Substituting Possessive Pronouns from Nouns:

You can eventually start with simple sentences like:
1. This is Paul’s book
(Substitute by Possessive Pronoun)
    This is His book.
2.¬† These are Patrick’s¬†Pencils.
(Substitute by Possessive Pronoun)
    These are His pencils.
3. Those are Bella’s¬†shoes.
(Substitute by Possessive Pronoun)
    Those are her shoes.

4. Activity Based Learning

There are multiple activity based learning criteria’s set to introduce Possessive Pronouns.¬†Here I am giving a little helping hand to all the teachers and homeschooling mothers by introducing one of my free homeschooling resources or¬† free educational resources for Preschool.¬†
Starting with the very basic while introducing Possessive Pronouns to the little ones, they should know what grammar to use while distinguishing  the belongings of a boy or girl, simultaneously they will be able to make use of possessive pronouns while making or writing down a sentence.
It is quite easy for the kids to adapt with this activity and all their concepts will be cleared gradually.
