Pronouns Following “Than” or “As”

Posted by Michelle on September 18, 2014 in Grammar, Language Arts |

5th and 6th grade –

We went over your test results today, please let me know if you need anything from me.

 

7th and 8th grade –

Today we will discuss pronouns when they follow the words “than” or “as.”

 

I found this excerpt online and I think it is well stated with good examples, so here it is:

“To decide whether to use the subject or object pronoun after the words than or as, mentally complete the sentence.

Examples:
Tranh is as smart as she/her.
If we mentally complete the sentence, we would say Tranh is as smart as she is. Therefore, she is the correct answer.

Zoe is taller than I/me.
Mentally completing the sentence, we have Zoe is taller than I am.

Daniel would rather talk to her than I/me.
We can interpret this sentence in two ways: Daniel would rather talk to her than to me.OR Daniel would rather talk to her than I would. A sentence’s meaning can change considerably, depending on the pronoun you choose.”

Object Pronouns

Posted by Michelle on September 17, 2014 in Grammar, Language Arts |

5th and 6th grade –

We tested today so there is no new information. You know the drill if you want more practice.

 

7th and 8th grade –

Remember yesterday when I said we would talk about object pronouns as time goes on? Well it has gone on and we are here!

 

Pronouns as Direct Objects –

If a pronoun comes after a verb and answers the question “Verb what?” or “Verb who?” then it is a direct object.

*Example: Mrs. Scherle took it out of the box.

Subject – Mrs. Scherle

Verb – took

Took what? it

It = direct object

 

Pronouns as Indirect Objects –

If a pronoun comes between a verb and a direct object and receives the action from the verb, it is an indirect object

*Example: Mrs. Costello asked you a question.

Subject – Mrs. Costello

Verb – asked

Direct Object – question (asked what)

Indirect Object – you (of whom?)

You = indirect object

 

Pronouns as Objects of Prepositions

We have looked a prepositional phrases many times now. If you have a prepositional phrase with a pronoun in it, your pronoun is the object of a preposition.

*Example: Ms. Hayden is going to lunch with them.

Subject – Ms. Hayden

Verb – is going

Prepositional Phrase – to lunch

Prepositional Phrase – with them

them = pronoun = object of a preposition

Review/Subject Pronouns

Posted by Michelle on September 16, 2014 in Grammar, Language Arts |

Greetings, all!

5th and 6th grade, you are still in review mode for your test tomorrow. If you want a quiz designed for you on No Red Ink, let me know. Otherwise use this site and your book to help you study.

 

7th and 8th Grade –

Today, we are looking at subject pronouns. Basically, subject pronouns are the ones that can start a sentence. They can certainly appear other places as well, but I find that this is the easiest way to identify them. Ask yourself if you can begin a sentence with the pronoun in question. If you can, it is a subject pronoun. If not, it is an object pronoun.

Chart!

Subject Pronouns                                                   Object Pronouns

I, he, she, it, we, they, you                                  me, him, her, it, us, them, you

 

As you may have noticed, a few pronouns exist in both lists. You simply have to pay attention to your sentence to decide if it is being used as a subject or an object. With subject pronouns, your only options are subject or subject complement. With objects, it could be a direct object, indirect object, object complement, or object of a preposition. We will be going over each of these as time goes on. For now, focus on subject pronouns and enjoy!

Review/Person, Number, and Gender of Pronouns

Posted by Michelle on September 15, 2014 in Grammar, Language Arts |

Hi, kids!

As I hope you are aware, in 5th and 6th grade we are taking the second page of your test on Wednesday this week. To review for this, see the following posts:

  • September 4 – Subject Pronouns
  • September 9 – Pronouns as Indirect Objects

7th and 8th grade, we are beginning our unit on pronouns. Our first lesson today is on number, person, and gender of pronouns. And here’s what all of those things mean:

  • Number – singular or plural
  • Person – 1st, 2nd, or 3rd person
  • Gender – Masculine, Feminine, or Neuter

Here are some charts to help you keep them straight:

Singular                                            Plural

1st Person                         I, me                                               we, us

 

2nd Person                         you                                                  you

 

3rd Person              he, him, she, her, it                                they, them

 

As far as gender goes, you just have to pay attention to who the pronoun is. he, she, him, and her are (I hope) somewhat easy. It will always be neuter. They, them, we, and us take some attention.
