Pronouns for Beginners

Pronouns for Beginners Posters are brightly colored and beautifully illustrated pronouns for classroom display in your literacy centers or bulletin board areas. The charts support visual learning and are a great way to brighten up any classroom. You can use these for whole class instruction, reference for writing, review of the concept or for test prep. The categories are:

--Subject Pronouns
--Object Pronouns
--Possessive Pronouns (these replace nouns. These are not to be confused with Possessive Adjectives which describe nouns)
--Possessive Adjectives (BONUS CHART)
--Reflexive Pronouns
--Indefinite Pronouns

The picture cards are great for little hands. They are great for target expressive skills and for encouraging focused writing.
