Mastering pronouns enables students' writing to be more sophisticated. They are able to construct more complex sentences and express ideas more original ways. This short unit focuses on possessive, indefinite and reflexive pronouns, in addition to pronoun and antecedent agreement.
Replacing possessive nouns with possessive pronouns helps your students' writing sound more natural and makes for an effortless read. Give your fifth graders the practice they need with these exercises created specifically for their age group.
Use this lesson to help your ELs quickly find information on a specific topic by looking for a noun and its pronouns in a nonfiction text. It can be a stand-alone lesson or used as support for the lesson Ecosystems Explained.
