GRAMMAR TIP:What Are Possessive Pronouns?
A possessive pronoun is a part of speech that substitutes for a possessive determiner (also known as a possessive adjective) and a noun or noun phrase. For example, in the sentence These glasses are mine, not yours, the words mine and yours are possessive pronouns and stand for my glasses and your glasses, respectively. Like other pronouns, possessive pronouns can thus obviate the need to repeat nouns or noun phrases. There are eight possessive pronouns in modern English: mine, yours, his, hers, its, ours, theirs, and whose, plus the antiquated possessive pronoun thine and the Middle English yourn (see also English personal pronouns). The word "its" is, however, rarely used as such (almost always it functions as a possessive adjective).
Possessive pronouns are the main topic of this page so if this is what you are working on with your students, you are in the right place. Currently

is a worksheet that includes only third person possessive pronouns. The materials and directions for a fifteen minute beginner activity and one additional activity are included. Breaking a set of pronouns into smaller sections, such as first, second, and third person or singular and plural, can give students more targeted practice before doing exercises using the whole set. Pronouns usually take a lot of practice; choose several worksheets to give students enough variety to keep lessons interesting. Once students have mastered possessive pronouns, consider having students complete an activity that combines possessive pronouns with another type of pronouns they have learned, for example personal pronouns. You can find other pronoun activities or review exercises that combine different types of pronouns in the main pronoun section.
