If you need possessive pronoun worksheets, here is a worksheet with two parts for you to use. In the first part, the students will identify possessive pronouns. In the second part, the students will practice using all the possessive pronouns.
Worksheet #1: Identifying Possessive Pronouns
- I took my dog to a dog show.
- His hair was longer than hers.
- I saw that her dog was smaller than their dog.
- Someone asked, "Is that dog yours?"
- I replied, "Yes, he's mine."
- I wonder whose dog is the smallest?"
- My dog won a first place ribbon.
- His ribbon was big and its color was blue.
- My parents and I were proud of our dog.
- Everybody thinks that one's dog is special.
- I'm sure your dog is special, too.
Worksheet #2: Possessive Pronoun Practice
This part of possessive pronoun worksheet is geared for more advanced students. It will include practice on using these possessive pronouns and contractions:
your, yours, you're, its, it's, whose, who's, their, theirs, there's.
Don't let possessive pronouns and gerunds confuse you. Look at these two sentences:
- She can't take him complaining all the time.
- She can't take his complaining all the time.
In the first sentence, what can't she take, "him" or "complaining"? The second sentence uses a possessive pronoun so you know that it is the "complaining" that she can't take.
Another confusing possessive pronoun is "one's." This is the only possessive pronoun that has an apostrophe.
A. 1. Who's, 2. their, 3. whose, 4. you're, 5. yours, 6. your, 7. It's, 8. There's, 9. its, 10. theirs
B. 1. my, 2. one's, 3. Your, 4. their, 5. ones
