Here is a packet of activities for targeting pronouns with a fun back-to-school theme. The activities in this packet target the subject pronouns “he, she, they” and the possessive pronouns “his” and “her.” You can use these activities to work on pronouns expressively or receptively.
Pages 2-5: Pronoun Boards- There are 2 different picture boards included and each board contains 12 back-to-school pictures. Read a sentence to your students and have them identify the picture that matches the sentence. The first board targets the pronouns “he, she, they” and the second board targets the pronouns “he, she.” There are suggested prompts to use with each board. If you are using this activity with a group of students, you could have one student describe the pictures for another student to identify so that you can also target expressive language skills.
Pages 6-10: Subject Pronoun Flashcards- There are 30 different picture cards that target the pronouns “he, she, they.” Have your students complete the sentence on the card with the correct subject pronoun. All the pictures have a cute back-to-school theme.
Pages 11-13: Possessive Pronoun Worksheets- Cut out the school supplies and have your students decide if they want to give each school item to the boy or the girl. Then, have your student put the picture on the appropriate worksheet while making a sentence like “I put the pencil in her backpack” or “I put the paper in his backpack.” You could use this activity to work on receptive language skills by giving your students directions like “Give her the red book” or “give the glue to him.”
Pages 14-16: Object Function Pronoun Cards- Each card includes a picture of a boy or girl and a school supply. The student has to make a sentence using the correct pronoun to describe how the boy/girl could use that school item. For example, “he can write with a pencil” or “she can draw a frog with her green crayon.” 18 cards.
