Will a freebie make it better? Part 2~Pronouns

In my last post I revealed the reason I hadn't blogged in forever!!  I promised to come back and discuss how my class has moved from verbs to pronouns and where we are going from there.

First, we reviewed nouns.  We wrote what each noun was and then came up with some examples.  This was the perfect transition into pronouns.  You can grab this freebie from the Not So Wimpy Teacher.
After a quick intro we dived straight into first, second, and third person subject/object and singular/plural nouns......if that isn't a mouthful!  The kids were looking at me like I was crazy and speaking a language they had NEVER heard.  Luckily we knew what singular, plural, and subject meant...the rest of it seemed difficult to fully understand.  We only did subject and object pronouns for the first week and then moved to possessives the second week.  This chart opened up a lot of conversation and was very helpful in getting all the information to the kids in a systematic way.  We glued ours in our grammar notebooks.  You can get a FREE copy by clicking the picture!
We spent two days working on these pronoun pockets.  This opened a lot of discussion about singular and plural pronouns and whether or not we were included in the group or if the noun was talking about ourselves.  You can grab your FREE copy of the template I used by clicking either of the pictures below.  We even threw in a little alliteration review ;)
We practiced what we had learned with these task cards from the Not So Wimpy Teacher and Polka-Dots in the Panhandle which are both FREE in their stores!  Click the pictures to grab them.
 
We had a short week due to Easter so there wasn't much time to work on possessives.  We played this super fun game and of course task cards are always sooo easy and versatile!  Grab the game from Melissa's Teaching Mall for FREE and the task cards from Jennifer Bennett for FREE as well!
After our WEEK LONG BREAK....that's right an entire week, we will be combining our learning with pronoun-verb agreement.  I am only on day 1 of break and loving it!!  The last 8 weeks will be rough, but that is NOT what I am focusing on right now :)

We will get back into the swing of things by reviewing pronouns with this four square game which is FREE from my store.  Just click the picture to grab it!
Another one of my favorite things to do as an alternative to worksheets is interactive ppt/pdf.  The questions are displayed on the board and the kids respond with whiteboards or if you are SUPER BRAVE you can let the kids write on their desks!  This is an exclusive FREEBIE just for making it this far!  This is a paid product from my store.  In this pdf the kids will respond to each sentence displayed on the screen with the correct verb that agrees with pronoun.  There are also three intro pages as well!
