Instructional Ideas
  • Use the activity after a grammar lesson on pronouns and parts of speech
  • Have class members provide their own examples of each type of pronoun in addition to the provided words
Classroom Considerations
  • The lesson prompts learners to match Post-it® notes with the category of pronouns to lists of pronouns, but it would be more effective to reverse the activity and give class members examples of pronouns to match to a poster with the category written on the top
  • Consider specifying the difference between personal and possessive pronouns
  • Modify the activity to avoid embarrassing learners who are incorrect
