Helping Students with Pronouns

A pronoun replaces a noun or noun phrase. Examples include his, her and they. Some 4th graders may struggle to differentiate between the forms, like he and him or she and her. Tests can help you identify what aspect of pronoun usage your child or students struggle with.

To provide daily practice with pronouns, there are several free worksheets you can print from the Internet that test students' understanding of proper usage. Additionally, you can find sample pronoun quizzes to use as a compliment weekly to spelling and vocabulary tests.

To individualize the tests, it may be better to create your own weekly tests. Write sentences with the pronouns left out and ask your child or students to fill in the blanks. You may also ask your students to replace the nouns in a sentence with the most appropriate pronouns. Alternatively, have them identify which word in the sentence is the pronoun.

To get started, use the sample sentences below. Answers and explanations are provided following each sentence.
