How to introduce grammar ?
 
Hello everyone !!
Iīll give a lesson about subject and object pronouns + possessive adjectives and I donīt know how to introduce it. Iīd like to find an attractive and funny way to indroduce this topic...
Can you help me ? Do you have ideas ?
 
Thanks a lot

Do you teach adults or children? I made a printable for that for adults (focus business English), but there are loads of worksheets on that subject here on the side.

Iīd recommend - for adults or children - to make them see, what a pronoun is for.
Mietz put a text in Mietzīs worksheet where Mietz completely took out all the pronouns. The text sounds totally strange. Can Elo22 imagine speaking without pronouns? Try to make the children make up texts without pronouns (with Mietz the students found the exercise helpful in the studentīs mothertongue compared to English.) Gosh - Mietz canīt write without pronouns anymore. Hope Elo22 got the idea. The idea is just a suggestion of course. :-)

Hi Elo,

Sometimes I do the following dynamic: I get a small ball and throw to a S and then I say: THIS IS NOT MY BALL, ITīS YOURS, then the S throws to another S and says: THIS IS NOT MY BALL, ITīS HIS/HERS

you can also change the diolgue to practice the personal pronouns. Throw the ball and say:
-IīM NOT MADONNA, YOU ARE MADONNA.
-NO, IīM NOT MADONNA, HE/SHE IS MADONNA
 
in groups:

-WE ARE NOT THE ROLLING STONES, THEY ARE THE ROLLING STONES

HOPE IT HELPS!!!!
A LITTLE KISS AND GOOD LUCK(*.*)

I like showing Grammar Rock (in this case "Rufus Xavier Sarsparilla")--I have even used it successfully with adults!  The Grammar Rock videos are all available on YouTube--search "grammar rock"and you will be overwhelmed.
