Reflexive Pronouns - ESL Activities, Games and Worksheets

Complete the Sentence

ESL Reflexive Pronouns Game - Reading, Matching, Listening and Speaking Activity - Pre-intermediate - 25 minutes

In this engaging teaching activity, students play a card game where they race to complete sentences with reflexive pronouns. The students are divided into groups of three. One student is the 'reader' and is given a set of sentence cards. The reader shuffles the cards and places them face down in a pile on the desk. The other two students are 'players' and are given a set of reflexive pronoun cards each. The players shuffle their cards and spread them out face up on the desk in front of them. The reader turns over the top card from the pile and reads the sentence aloud to the players using the word 'blank' for the missing reflexive pronoun. The players listen and then race to grab the correct pronoun card to complete the sentence. The first player to grab the correct reflexive pronoun card from their set and give it to the reader, saying the pronoun at the same time wins and keeps the two cards. The correct answer is shown for the reader on the sentence card. If neither player gives the right answer, the sentence card is placed at the bottom of the pile to be used again later in the game. This process continues until there are no more sentence cards left. The player with the most cards at the end of the game is the winner.

Reflexive Pronouns Worksheet

ESL Reflexive Pronouns Worksheet - Reading, Matching and Writing Activity - Pre-intermediate - 30 minutes

Here is a comprehensive reflexive pronouns worksheet for pre-intermediate students. Each student is given a copy of the two worksheets. Students begin by learning how reflexive pronouns are used and matching subject pronouns to reflexive pronouns. The students then read a set of sentences and choose the correct reflexive pronoun to complete each one. Students then move on to complete sentences with reflexive pronouns. Following that, students write appropriate subjects for sentences that contain reflexive pronouns. Afterwards, students read a text about a party and complete a paragraph with the correct reflexive pronouns. Finally, students create an example sentence for each reflexive pronoun using their own ideas.

Reflexive Pronoun Presumptions

ESL Reflexive Pronouns Activity - Reading, Writing, Listening and Speaking - Low intermediate - 30 minutes

In this fun reflexive pronoun worksheet activity, students make guesses about their classmates by completing sentences with reflexive pronouns. Students then check whether their guesses are right or wrong by asking yes/no questions. Each student is given a copy of the worksheet. The students make guesses about their classmates by completing each sentence on the worksheet with the name of a classmate and an appropriate reflexive pronoun, e.g. 'I think Jessica always behaves herself in class'. When the students have finished, they change their sentences into yes/no questions, e.g. 'Do you always behave yourself in class?' Afterwards, the students' questions are reviewed as a class. The students then go around the classroom, asking the questions to the appropriate classmates to find out if their guesses are right or wrong. If a classmate answers 'yes', the student puts a tick in the corresponding column to show their guess was right. If the answer is 'no', the student puts a cross. Students then find out more information by asking follow-up questions and writing the information in the last column. When everyone has finished, there is a class feedback session to find out who made the most correct guesses and for students to report back to the class on the things they found out about their classmates. If you have a weak class, you can have the students read the sentences to their classmates rather than ask questions.
