A pronoun is a word that can be used in place of a noun in order to avoid repetition and provide flair to a sentence. It is one of the first parts of speech an individual learns in primary school. This series of worksheets bring to you various ways of introducing pronouns into your child’s treasure of knowledge. There are fill-in-the-blanks, true or false, and finish the story type questions that are important for examinations as well as for clearing out your kid’s concepts.
In this first worksheet, some examples are already solved for your and your child’s benefit. The objective of the exercise is to circle the pronoun in each sentence. The words you are looking for are words that are used to refer to noun words already mentioned before. This is just a preliminary exercise meant to familiarize the child with the concept of pronouns. They don’t need to get into the nuances of the topic just yet.
Complete the story
Via the second the of worksheet, we move on to a more advanced stage of learning to use pronouns. Here, a paragraph is given narrating a day in the life of a young boy named Raghav. The child is supposed to fill in the blanks with pronouns they deem appropriate.
Fill in the Blanks
Personal pronouns are pronouns that are used in place of proper nouns or sometimes, animals. Its form can change depending on the number of subjects it is supposed to denote. Personal pronouns are of three kinds – First person, Second person and Third person. The words given in the brackets can be from a first person point of view (Eg: ‘I’), second person point of view (Eg : ‘You’) or third person point of view (Eg : ‘He’, ‘She’, ‘Them’). The kid is expected to choose the correct word and place it in the context of the sentence.
Fill in the Blanks with personal pronouns
The two above worksheets are Fill in the Blanks type exercises. The child is supposed to choose a pronoun given in the help box to complete the sentence. The right answer has to be chosen based on the numeric value of the noun, gender of the noun and weather the noun is an animate or an inanimate object. This stands as the overall ground rule for the use of pronouns.
Choose the correct option
This set of worksheets requires the students to choose between the options given. The options are meant to confuse young minds. Try to keep your patience with them and not become frustrated easily. It is advisable not to force a kid to solve all the worksheets at once. One kind of exercise or a healthy mixed bowl can be two ways to go.
