The first part involves the pronoun people. Now, you could use this part alone. You do NOT need part 2 or part 3 to enjoy this activity! The pronoun people have blanks where the specific pronouns belong. For example, the above sentences should read, "He is standing" and "She is standing". Obviously the pronouns are missing. If your students are at a higher level where they do not need a word bank, simply ask them to fill in the blank!
However, if your students enjoy a word bank, then that will lead us to part 2.
Part 2 involves fish. I wanted to create a "feed the alligator" activity. You would be surprised at how many students love to just put objects or pictures in a box. This can keep them occupied for quite some time!
With that in mind, I decided to use fish as something the alligator would eat.
The fish are so cute! They have the pronouns printed on them.
You put a pronoun person in front of the student. If the student cannot fill in the blank and needs some choices, select two or three fish and have the student pick the correct pronoun from those choices. Once the student selects the correct pronoun/fish, the student can feed the fish to the alligator. Make some "chomp chomp chomp" noises as the alligator eats the fish!
Part 3 involves creating the alligator. I have yet to do this, but I plan to do it this week. The finished product will look something like this:
I got this idea from Pinterest from Make Learning Fun. I plan to add some teeth and googly eyes to my alligator, but it will look similar to this. I will upload a finished picture later this week!

Now this is kind of funny. I first created Pronoun Ants thinking that alligators eat ants. Well, after some research, I discovered that alligators do not eat ants. So I created Pronoun Ants before creating Pronoun Fish. I decided to upload the Pronoun Ants anyway because you can use the ants the same way you use the fish, just perhaps feed them to something else or create an ant home or something. :)
