What Are Pronouns?

Activity Worksheet from page  139

The Young Scholar’s Workbook:

Book I Vol. I 

by Brenda Johnson Padgitt

What are Pronouns?  

Proper Nouns?

      A pronoun takes the place of a noun.  Examples of subject pronouns are: I, you, he, she, it, we, you, & they.  Subject pronouns replace nouns that follow the verb be.   Examples of object pronouns are me, you, her, him, it, us, you, & them.  Object pronouns replace nouns after action verbs or after to, for, with, in or at.

      Proper Nouns name a particular person, place or thing.  Proper nouns are also capitalized.  Examples are: Mrs. Dobbs, Atlantic Ocean, Red Sea, Pecan Street, Africa, St. Luke Apartments.

     Directions:  Replace the Proper Nouns in each sentence below with a pronoun.  Write a pronoun below the noun.  The first sentence is done for you. {TYS LA 1st to 4th, 1  110.3(a)(1)(4), 2  110.4(b)(3)(e), 2  110.4(a), 3  110.5(a)(4), 4  110.6(a)(4)}
