Possessive Pronouns - 6th Grade Grammar

Possessive Pronouns

A possessive pronoun shows who or what owns something.
        That’s her key chain. 
        What is your homework for tonight?
        That is her jacket.
        Mark said this is his backpack.
        Is this your project?

My, your, her, his, its, our, and their come before nouns.
        Makayla accidently dropped her coins in the dark theater.
        If you forget to bring markers, you may borrow my markers.
        These are our papers.
        I found my homework on the table.

Stand-Alone Possessive Pronouns

Some possessive pronouns can stand alone and are used in place of nouns. These possessive pronouns are mine, yours, his, hers, ours, and theirs

        That key chain is hers
        That book is hers.
        If you forget to bring markers, you may borrow mine.
        The notebook is mine
        The project is theirs.
        These papers are ours.

Most possessive pronouns that can stand on their own are different from possessives that precede nouns.
My becomes mine, your becomes yours, her becomes hers, our becomes ours, and their becomes theirs
His stays the same. 
        That is her jacket. 
        That jacket is hers

        Mark said this is his backpack. 
        Mark said this is his

        Is this your project? 
        Is this project yours

        The huge poster belongs to Abigail and Mark. 
        The huge poster is theirs

        If you forget to bring markers, you may borrow my markers. 
        If you forget to bring markers, you may borrow mine

        These are our papers. 
        These papers are ours

        I found my homework on the table. 
        I found mine on the table.
