Your kids might really enjoy this little freebie that I recently posted in my store, and I think you will find it useful as well. It’s a color coding activity that’s all about types of pronouns – types that are mentioned in the Common Core Standards for middle grades, you know:
- Subject Pronouns
- Object Pronouns
- Intensive Pronouns
- Relative Pronouns
These are some of the same topics that are addressed in my longer pronoun resources (task cards, slide presentation, and an Easel activity) Those resources also include additional pronoun topics. Here is the list:
- Subject and Object Pronouns
- Possessive Pronouns
- Intensive and Reflexive Pronouns
- Relative Pronouns
- Pronoun-Antecedent Agreement
Anyway, back to this FREEBIE! It has two color coding sheets – one easier and one more difficult. For the easier one, students use the color code to sort subject and object pronouns, singular and plural. For the harder one, the four categories are: subject pronouns, object pronouns, relative pronouns, and intensive pronouns.
Here you can see the Subject and Object Pronouns page in the printable version:
And, as I mentioned, two versions – printable and the digital, are included in the free resource. The digital version is on TPT’s Easel which is an easy format both for teachers and for students to use. It is ready to go with student directions right on each page. Students are directed to use the highlighter tool for coloring, since this will allow the words to show through after they finish coloring.
One benefit of color coding activities is that it encourages kids to work carefully and be accurate with their work. With any coloring activity, kids want their picture to look good when it is finished, and so they aim for 100 percent accuracy (even though it’s easy to change colors whenever they change their mind in the digital version!). Somehow a wrong color on one section of a picture seems to stand out more that just one wrong answer on a traditional worksheet!
Here you can see the page with four types of pronouns in the the digital Easel version:
