- Review the Nouns, Common/Proper from the 1st 2 days.
- Today we’ll be learning about: Pronouns
- Pronouns take the place of a noun.
- When I’m not here to teach, who steps in to help?
- A substitute teacher can step in for the teacher’s job.
- In a sentence, a pronoun can step in for a noun, so when we read, we don’t have to say the noun over and over again.
- If I write a paragraph: Sarah went to the store. Sarah bought some bread. Sarah went through the checkout lane. Then, Sarah drove back home.
- If a reader reads that they will get tired of repeating, instead we can take the proper noun Sarah out and replace it with the pronoun she. Sarah went to the store. She bought some bread. She went through the checkout lane. Then, she drove back home.
- There are two types of pronouns: Singular and Plural.
- Singular Pronouns take the place a (1) noun. Male pronouns will be he, Female pronouns: she, Animals or things: it, Talking to a person: you.
- Some pronouns mean more than one thing. They are called pronouns:
- We will go with you.
- They will race around the track.
- Write two columns: students should come up and match the noun to the correct pronoun by drawing a line between the two matches.
You and I
- Have a student come up and complete the sentence by replacing the noun with the corerct pronoun.
