I have written supplementary lessons for Woe Is I, Jr., a grammar handbook for kids. You can find my introductory comments and the first lesson here.

1.   Read Chapter 1 and do what O’Conner suggests.  

2.   Watch Schoolhouse Rock’s Rufus Xavier Sarsaparilla, a video about pronouns.  

3.   Write a paragraph or two about a funny or scary or challenging activity you did with someone else. The catch? Don’t use any pronouns. Copy and paste it; then rewrite it with pronouns. When you compare the two, what do you discover? 

4.   Practice your pronouns at www.chompchomp.com. Complete the handouts or interactive exercises for Pronoun Case.

I would love to see the funny, scary, or challenging paragraphs in the comments. Please share.

Xina and Lucas played scorer together on a wonderful day. The game was hard, Xina and Lucas trying to win the game. But then the score was 9/9, next point the games over. Fighting for the ball Xina and Lucas were going wild, then Lucas got a goal and won the game!
