This exercise for KS1/K-2 can be used to practise the use of personal pronouns in a meaningful way.
After reading the sentence, the pupils choose a personal pronoun from the word bank and fill in the gap. They will also draw a picture about the sentence. Most sentences are about themselves and the people they know. This will help them to make connections and get a better understanding of when to use which personal pronoun in their daily lives.
The authentic nature of this exercise, gave my students ownership and kept them engaged the entire lesson.
Personal pronouns used in this exercise are: I, he, she, it, we, they
