When writing, clarity is key. It is important for students to understand how the proper use of a pronoun will clarify to readers what noun the writer is talking about. Use the printable worksheets below to help students get the reinforcement they need for using subject and object pronouns.
There are two types of pronouns: subject pronouns, the subject of the sentence, and object pronouns, usually the object of a preposition. Determining the correct word choice gets tricky when a subject pronoun is used as a subject complement following a linking verb. Known as a predicate nominative, the form follows that of a subject pronoun. On the other hand, the object pronoun is used when following a preposition such as after, at, between, for, to, and with.
