Pronoun Worksheets

Pronouns are words that take the place of nouns. They minimize redundancy in language. For example, instead of saying, “John went to John’s house because John’s mom wanted John home,” one can say, “John went to his house because his mom wanted him home.” Pronouns save a lot of syllables.

However, mastering pronouns can be difficult. One must learn to identify subjective, objective, and possessive cases. One must learn to avoid using vague pronouns, or pronouns with unclear antecedents. And often, all of this must be done while one is speaking. I have created many pronoun worksheets, resources, and activities over the years. These resources have been made freely available to you. I hope that this helps.
