Personal Pronouns
• Pronouns are words that take the place of common
and proper nouns.
• The key benefits of pronouns is that they are useful in
making our language not be so repetitive and keeps it
from bogging down. If it weren’t for pronouns, when
you were talking about someone, you would have to
keep repeating their name over and over.
• Antecedents are the words that the pronouns replace.
• Jason left some books in the cafeteria. He asked his
teacher if he could go get them.
During: Personal Pronouns
• Personal pronouns are used in place of a common or
proper noun.
• Example: He is not staying.
I
me
he
she
it
him
her
you
we
they
them
During: Personal Pronouns
• Possessives show ownership.
• Example: This is his book.
his
hers
its
yours
ours
theirs
During: Personal Pronouns

1) Emily wondered where she left her book bag.
2) Kenny watched the bird build its nest.
3) The football team left their helmets on the field.

• Write a sentence with each of the vocabulary
words on page 100. (DO NOT copy the
example sentence in the book. Create your

During:
Personal Pronouns as Subjects
• Subject pronouns function as the subject of a
clause or sentence.
• The subject pronouns are: I, we, he, she, it,
you, and they
• An example of a subject pronoun at work
would be: She is too funny.
Subject Pronouns
Here are a few sentences using subject pronouns:
• She watered the plants.
• Sometimes, they act crazy.
• You can go to the game, as long as you finish
the dishes.
• We are finished with examples.
Pronouns as Objects
• The object is affected in some way by the subject
of the sentence.
Let’s break down just what an objective noun is,
using an example sentence:
• Mary ate the ice cream.
Mary is the subject of the sentence. Now let’s
replace “ice cream” with “it.”
• Mary ate it.
“it” is the object pronoun because “it” is replacing
the object that Mary (the subject) is eating
(affecting).
Pronouns as Objects
Underline the object pronouns.
1) She liked the way it tasted.
2) I want to read all about it.
