you or yours
I devised this game after getting the results back from a class test at elementary level. They wrote about 'my best friend'. Or 'mi best frinde'. I realised that they didn't have ownership quite sussed. We sat in a circle with each of us clasping an article that belonged to us, such as a pencil-casae or a cell-phone or rubber or whatever. I pointed to students ramdomly. All the ss said hers, or his while the owner said mine. Occasionally I added in my object and they all said yours. Sounds a bit trite but worked really well and by the end they could all say mine, yours his hers and theirs very naturally. Next add the noun, my cell-phone etc and started again. Hope it works for you.
