Pronouns are an integral part of the English language. The usage of a particular pronoun is dependent on a noun and the antecedent of the noun (the noun phrase), and directly refers to certain nouns within the sentences. Students must learn about pronouns in order to be successful speakers, readers, and writers. Pronouns come in many types, such as personal, relative, interrogative, demonstrative, and indefinite. Some pronouns can seem confusing to children, therefore, the basic pronouns, such as I, he, you, she, it, we and they are taught in the elementary grades. These basic pronouns are the basis for speaking successfully in daily interactions and conversations with peers and adults. Once the students grasp the basics, they will be prepared to learn the more difficult pronouns later on. When students read fiction, non-fiction, and poetry, they come across many pronouns. Students comprehend the meaning of the text better with an understanding of this part of speech.

Pronouns worksheets are a popular way to reinforce the concept of this part of speech. Teachers use pronouns worksheets after teaching a lesson so the students can practice finding the pronouns within sentences, writing pronouns in the blanks given, or creating their own pronouns within sentences, paragraphs, or stories. Pronouns worksheets are available on many different levels for the English Language Learners, the lower-leveled readers, and the higher-leveled readers. With such a diverse choice of these practice sheets, teachers have much to choose from in terms of providing practice fo the students. Pronouns worksheets are a popular addition to the language arts curriculum in any grade, and are used by many instructors for classroom instruction and for homework. In addition to pronouns worksheets, teachers also emphasize pronouns through online computer games and through oral language activities.
There is a wide variety of pronoun activities used in today’s classrooms. Teachers use pronoun activities such as worksheets, oral language activities, sentence writing and story writing, partner story writing using pronouns, flash card activities, and computer games to help develop the students’ knowledge of pronouns. Students also do a lot of reading and identifying the pronouns within text and acknowledging who or what the pronouns are referring to. When reading, either individually or with another student, the students increase their awareness of the use of pronouns by the author and ultimately become successful at knowing what pronouns are and what their role is within the English language. Pronoun activities are done in conjunction with other parts of speech activities within the classroom, which in turn strengthens their knowledge of the other parts of speech they have previously learned and prepares them for the others to come.
