Pronoun Pockets

Hello teacher friends!


Well in Third Grade Land we are learning about pronouns, and I am always looking for new ways to have my kids create something that is hands-on and memorable, since there is soooooo much grammar that we cover - and it can get a bit tedious!


I stole this idea from a 4th grade teacher at my school who was using this idea to teach prefixes and suffixes, and adapted it for pronouns -  and voila!!  The Pronoun Pockets were born!  After doing a mini lesson on pronouns and the nouns they can replace in sentences, we made our Pronoun Pockets in about 15 minutes.  The outside of the flaps have the pronouns, and the inside features a noun that they could replace with that particular pronoun.  The kids loved it, and it was quick and easy! 



This is DEFINITELY something that can be adapted to a variety of subjects and grade levels!  It would be great for vocabulary words, learning synonyms and antonyms, even for math fact families!  The sky is the limit!  Enjoy and happy teaching!

I love your "We Did" letters on your bulletin board. Where did you find them? Thanks! SDNana

The whole bulletin board actually says "LOOK WHAT WE DID!" (That picture is only of half the board - the letters are huge!) I got the letters at Lakeshore and they are adorable!! Thanks for the comment!
