These activity sheets will teach your students how to identify and use pronouns correctly.

Pronouns are words that take the place of a noun. Like nouns, pronouns can be singular, plural, or possessive. They can also be subjects or objects. The proper use of pronouns breathes life into our language. It helps us to avoid constant repetition and makes sentences easier to comprehend. The five most common pronouns used in the English language are: he, she, it, they, and this. There are seven common forms of pronouns you will use in your writing. Personal pronouns are used to specific a particular person or thing. Their form can change to indicate a number, gender, or case. The demonstrative form is used to point to something specific within a sentence. They often are used to indicate items in space or time. The interrogative form is used to as questions. Words such as: what, which, and who/whom fall into this category. The relative form is used to link a phrase or clause to one another that was mentioned previously in your work. The indefinite form is used to refer to a person or thing without being specific. The most common word forms for this are: all, anyone, each, everybody, and someone. The reflexive form is used to refer back to the subject of the sentence or clause. Example words of the reflexive form include: myself, herself, himself, and ourselves. The intensive form is used to add a higher level of emphasize on the antecedents of the sentence. This is a more complex form than we expect for writers at this level.

The following collection of worksheets will help your students learn about pronouns. Activities include replacing selected words in a given sentence with the corrected word, identifying the antecedent a selected word might refer to, classifying selected words as objects or subjects, rewriting sentences to include a fixed word form, and more. Take these shortened proper nouns to the next level with these worksheets. Earn credit for each identification and replacement exercise. I find those to be the most difficult for most students.
