How to teach this lesson on object pronouns
Before even introducing object pronouns to students, you must review the subject pronouns that they are already familiar with. Be sure to have students use these subject pronouns in sentences so that you can check their understanding of them. You can find the Off2Class lesson on subject pronouns here.
After reviewing subject pronouns you can start introducing students to sentences with the object pronouns me, you, him, her, it, us, you and them. I suggest referring to the images as a means to display the fact that object pronouns receive actions. It is also helpful to add arrows on the slides to further enforce this concept. I also recommend providing students with examples or demonstrations if they are having difficulty grasping the role of object pronouns. In any case, as a teacher, you should provide your students with feedback and encouragement.
By the end of the lesson, your student should be able to make sentences with object pronouns. If they are not able to do this I recommend having an honest discussion with your student(s) about what they find difficult about object pronouns.
