Complete the Sentence

ESL Reflexive Pronouns Game - Reading, Matching, Listening and Speaking Activity - Pre-intermediate (A2) - 25 minutes

In this engaging reflexive pronouns teaching activity, students play a card game where they race to complete sentences with reflexive pronouns. Divide the students 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.

Here is a comprehensive reflexive pronouns worksheet for pre-intermediate students. Give each student a copy of the two-page worksheet.

Following that, students write appropriate subjects for sentences that contain reflexive pronouns.

Reflexive Pronoun Presumptions

ESL Reflexive Pronouns Activity - Reading, Writing, Listening and Speaking - Intermediate (A2-B1) - 30 minutes

In this free reflexive pronouns 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. Give each student 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, review the students' questions 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.
