Possessives mein, dein exercise Example with family members (my father, my mother e.t.c) You should have taught the family members first. In that way students know all the family members, so they know which one is masculine, which one feminine. They have to fill out the masculine members and put them under "Vater" and likewise the feminine members and put them under "Mutter". Think of all the relatives like: cousine/tante e.t.c. In Plural think of "Geschwister/Grosseltern e.t.c. So you also repeat the "family vocabulary". It also contains the grammar rule when using the feminine gender/plural.
