This worksheet introduces students to direct object pronouns in Spanish with an explanation of how they function in English. After the explanation, students are asked to identify the direct object pronoun in an English sentence. Once they are able to recognize direct object pronouns in English, the Spanish equivalents are introduced. Students are then asked to decide which pronoun would replace the noun in exercises. Finally, students are asked to create a sentence in Spanish with a noun as the direct object and then are asked to create the same sentence, but with the direct object pronoun replacing the noun. Samples include:
English Explanation Example:
I eat the cookie. What do I eat? The cookie. “The cookie” is the direct object.
I read the book. What do I read? The book. “The book” is the direct object.
Spanish Sentence without DO Pronoun Replacement Example:

Spanish sentences with DO Replacement Example:
