The Weekly Text, June 7, 2019

On Tuesday of this week I posted a complete lesson on using personal pronouns in the nominative case. For this week’s, Text, let’s go to the other side of the sentence.

Here is a complete lesson plan on using the personal pronoun in the objective case. I begin this lesson, after a class transition in order to get students settled, with this Everyday Edit on Iqbal Masih, Child Activist (if you and your students like Everyday Edit worksheets, you can help yourself to a yearlong supply of them at no cost by clicking on that hyperlink); in the event that the lesson spills over into a second day, here is a worksheet on the homophones there, their, and they’re.

The center of this lesson is this scaffolded worksheet on using the personal pronoun in the objective case. Finally, here is the learning support on pronouns and case that I also included on the original post, last Tuesday, on using the personal pronoun in the nominative case.

And that’s it for the penultimate week of the school year here in Springfield, Massachusetts.

If you find typos in these documents, I would appreciate a notification. And, as always, if you find this material useful in your practice, I would be grateful to hear what you think of it. I seek your peer review.

Everyday Edit: Chinese New Year

Here is an Everyday Edit on the Chinese New Year. If you like these exercises (in my experience, students enjoy them, and they can be a real confidence builder for struggling readers and writers), you can click through to Education World, whose authors generously offer a yearlong supply of them.

My usual entreaty about peer review and typo alerts don’t apply here: I didn’t write this, and the typos in the worksheet are for your students to note and correct.

And you will find typos on this worksheet because they were placed there purposely. The question is, will your students find them?
