Activity Overview


French possessive adjectives can be difficult for anglophone learners since the gender of the adjective corresponds to the noun that is possessed, rather than the noun that does the possessing. In the sentence “John ate his lunch”, for example, “his” corresponds in gender to “John” in English, but to “lunch” in French. Creating a visual representation of the two nouns in question can help students better grasp this conceptual shift.

In this activity, students will create a six-cell storyboard illustrating a sentence that uses a possessive pronoun. Students should include one possessive pronoun for each of the six personal pronoun categories in French.


MA / MON / MES Je lis mon livre.
TA / TON / TES Jean, est-ce que c'est ton frère là-bas?
SA / SON / SES Le directeur téléphone à sa femme.
NOTRE / NOS Nous faisons nos devoirs.
VOTRE / VOS Madame Michelot, où achetez-vous vos chaussures?
LEUR / LEURS Les élèves mangent leur repas.
