Therefore, I created a pronoun activity that uses a tissue box! Take a look.
- Print and laminate all materials.
- Cut out and glue/tape the four backpack pictures on each side of one small, square tissue box.
- Cut out all of the object pictures (pages 9-11), place Velcro on the back of each object picture, and place the pictures inside the box.
- Cut out the people pictures (page 8) and glue/tape them onto a laminated file folder.
- Cut out the sentence strip and place Velcro on the back of the words.
How to Use:
- Place the object pictures in the tissue box.
- Turn to the correct pronoun side that the student needs to work on (he, she, it, and they). The backpack with the girl on the top is the "she" pronoun backpack and so forth.
- Have the student pick one picture from the box.
- The student should look at the backpack (to determine the correct pronoun) and answer the question "what does the student have in the backpack?". The student should say something like, "he has a ______".
- If the student needs help with increasing MLU or using full sentences, use the sentence strip on page 12.
- Then, the student can attach the picture of the object under the correct person on the file folder via Velcro.
- Continue in this manner until all of the pictures are gone! Keep track of each student's correct responses, and the student with the most correct answers at the end wins!
For example: If the student selects an orange from the "she" side of the box, then the student would say, "She has an orange". Then the student should Velcro the picture of the orange under the girl on the file folder.
The download includes 45 object pictures! The pictures are pretty much a random mix. Take a look at the example below:
As mentioned above, the backpacks have a girl, a boy, a cat (for it), and both a boy and a girl (for they) on each.
There are many other goals you can target with these pictures as well! You can target describing, labeling objects, functions, categories, and even specific articulation sounds!
What do you think? I think (hope) my preschoolers will love this!
