Over on the members forum we’re beta testing a new Pronouns/Be Verb song which also links in with yesterday’s “Be Verb Game

I’ve been working on a few ideas for minicards to represent the pronouns and I think this is the best way to do it, with “I am”, “She is” etc. on the cards instead of just “He”, “I” etc.  What do you think?

If you need colour cards, they are in the Pronouns & Stationery card game.  It’s then easy to link up with the “How are you?” cards to say “He is hungry”, “They are happy” etc.

P.S. If you just treat pronouns as normal vocab items then it’s also really easy to add in “everybody” and “nobody” in one lesson as well!

    These cards are perfect. I planned to start with the song next week so this handout will make the pronouns so much clearer for the children. I like to play slam with the new vocab, using jar lids, so this format is the great for me ! Thanks for the black and white too!!

    The actions for the song in the forum from Rosebud and Carol are really useful too.

    The cards look good, Richard. I keep reviewing this with the kids throughout the lessons using the hand gestures, particulary using verbs to practise present continuous and present simple. I really want the “s” only with he/she/it/everybody to sink in. I haven’t taught nobody yet though. Must add that one in.

    Agreeing with the above. These are great. The “nobody” and “everybody” will be especially usefull in one of my six grade classes – “Who’s genki today?” “Nobody!”, “who’s sleepy?” “Everybody!!” . Haha.

    Just like Flossy, the first thing I thought was PERFECT!! The kids know the song by hear but he/she seems to be really hard for them (I don’t know why since they have il/elle in French…) but these cards are just we they need and the B/W is great!!! Thanks

    Julian-k I like your idea for using “who’s…?” and I’m going to have them use the hand gestures for awhile everytime they use he/she! Thanks Rosebud (love your pic!)
