A Helpful Tip for Memorizing English Pronouns

Our Classical Conversations Community just did week 4 of cycle 2, which has the nominative pronouns. This reminded me of how last time we did cycle 2 were got pretty confused by week 8, trying to remember which pronouns where nominative, which were objective, etc… so I made little graphic and hung it up in our homeschool room. It worked great for us then so I searched my hard drive, found it, and reprinted, and hung it up again. Hopefully it will help you too!
Here’s how we used it: Every time we said “Nominative Pronouns” we said “I love Nuts.” We quickly associated the two and could then easily move on to “You love nuts. He loves nuts. She loves nuts. It loves nuts. We love nuts. You love nuts. They love nuts. From there we know the nominative pronouns are “ I, you, he/she/it, we, you, they.”  Every time we said “Objective Pronouns” we said “The ostrich hurt me. The ostrich hurt you…” We quickly associated those and could then easily move on to “me, you, him/her/it, us, you, them.”
Does that makes sense? It might sound like a long process, but we quickly dropped the middle steps and had it memorized! 🙂

  1. I really like this idea. We are on our 3rd time through Cycle 2 and have yet to memorize these. I had pretty much decided I would present the pronoun info but they probably wouldn’t remember it. But I think they would like this idea for memorizing these confusing pronouns. I’m printing it today and hanging it up. Thank you!
