You’ve talked about pronouns for several weeks.
You’ve given pronoun homework.
You’ve done a pronoun review.
You’re in the middle of your pronoun assessment and a student raises their hand and asks “What’s a pronoun?”
Are you kidding me!?!!!?
One year I decided to try something different.
I’m a person that likes to see how the small pieces fit into the big picture. I think that’s helpful for kids, too. This visual aid (just made from cardstock and black string) helps kids start to build a schema about parts of speech. I refer to it during lessons and it’s really helpful for kids during independent work.
