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.
