Pronoun Patty

Pronoun Patty is a LessonPix character who can help teach, practice, and play with different pronouns. You can find Patty's pictures here. By focusing on one character, all of the pronouns are shown in relation to her. For example "I" is Patty and "us" is Patty and her friend, (Position Pete). 

Remember that all of the text can be changed to match the pronouns you need.  

Here are some fun activities to teach pronouns...

1. Pronoun Picture cards: Use visuals to introduce and discuss pronouns.  

2. Possessive Pronouns Dice Game: Construct these two dice for a fun way to practice possessives. "His" + "pencil" or "Your" + "school". 

3. Predictible Chart Writing Strips: Use picture cards on the last page to fill in the blank for each sentence. Cut the sentences into strips for a small group activity. 

4. Name the Pronoun: Students can mark each pronoun after they say, idenitfy, match, or use the pronoun in a sentence. For more fun, students mark the pronoun when they find it in a story or find matching picture cards hidden around the room.  

5. Find the Words: Students can use these picture and word cards to find matching pronouns while "reading the room" or in a storybook.
