Subject and Object Pronouns - ESL EFL Activities, Worksheets and Games
ESL EFL Listening, Speaking and Matching Activity - Elementary - 25 Minutes
In this entertaining activity, students play a card game to practice subject and object pronouns. In the activity, students race to complete sentences with appropriate subject or object 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. The other two students are 'players' and are given a set of pronoun cards each. The players spread their pronoun cards out face up in front of them. The reader turns over the top card from the pile and reads the sentence or sentences aloud to the players using the word 'blank' as the missing pronoun. The players then race to find the correct pronoun card from their set and give it to the reader, saying the pronoun at the same time. The first player to do this wins and keeps the two cards as a ‘trick’. The correct answer is shown for the reader on the sentence card. The player with the most tricks at the end of the game is the winner. The students then repeat the game with a different student reading the sentence cards.
