Step 1. Read or write a few sentences with pronouns in it .
Step 2. Ask the students who they represent or point to in a sentence .
Step 3. Rewrite the sentence using the noun instead of the pronoun .
For example : 1 Prakash , go and get your book . It is on the table .
2 Prakash go and get Prakash’s book . Book is on the table .
Q. Which of the two sentences is better ?
Q2What is odd in the second sentence ?
Explanation : Pronouns are the words used in place of nouns .
We never use a pronoun for the first time . It is always used in place of a noun .
Example : He is absent today .
‘ He ‘ has no identity therefore will lead to the question who ?
We have to precede the sentence with a noun . We will write …Where is Ramesh ? Ans will be … He is absent today .
Give exercises for practice using different pronouns .
Write down the personal pronouns and use them in sentences and ask who are they being used for .
1 I like banana .
Q. Who is I ?
Ravi , why didn’t you do your homework ?
Q. Who do ‘ you ‘ and ‘ your ‘ point to in the above sentence?
Like this ask a few questions using different type of pronouns .
Step 4 . Tell them about the pronoun ‘it ‘ and it’s use .
‘ It ‘ is usde for no living things and animals .
For example : I have dog . It’s name is Robert .
Trees are our friends .
They help in keeping the environment fresh and cool .
Ask them to identify the pronouns and the nouns they have been used for .

Give a mixed list of these pronouns and ask them to separate the singular from plurals .
It , they , he ,she ,them , their , her .his .we , us , our , I .
