Pronoun - antecedent agreement is a concept my students really struggle with. This three-part PowerPoint has finally made understanding this concept much easier for them!
In this set of PowerPoint minilessons, the concept of pronoun-antecedent agreement is laid out in three parts:
Part One: Identification of Pronouns and Antecedents
(It is assumed that students have prior knowledge of pronouns and do not need instruction in how to identify them. This part focuses on how to identify the antecedent in relation to the pronoun.)
Part Two: Basics of Pronoun-Antecedent Agreement.
The three rules for agreement (number, person, and gender) are explained.
Part Three: Indefinite Pronoun - Antecedent Agreement.
This concept deserves special treatment because it can be so hard for students to understand. After working through Parts One and Two, the concept of indefinite pronoun - antecedent agreement is nowhere near as overwhelming as it would be if it was all introduced at the same time!
Each part contains an explanation that includes rules. In some cases, this includes common errors that are made in agreement. Practice exercises are also included -- both as slides in the PowerPoint and as a separate PDF, complete with answer key.
I treat each part of this PowerPoint as a mini-lesson and spread instruction out over three days, reinforced with worksheets or task cards on the same concepts....which you can find in my TPT store!
This zipped folder contains the following:
~ PowerPoint Presentation with the three mini-lessons
~ PDF Guided Practice Sheet. This practice sheet contains the same exercises as the slides with practice items in the PowerPoint, in case you wish students to try on their own first or as you work through them in class. An answer key is included.
A partner to this PowerPoint
