Turn pronoun practice into a game-like activity with these FREE task cards. This collection of cards are set up to work well with the game Scoot. Also, students do not have to read The Wonderful Wizard of Oz to enjoy using these task cards.
In this FREE download, you will receive instructions for playing Scoot, the 28 task cards, an answer recording page, plus an answer key.
Playing Scoot turns using a set of task cards into a game. You play by placing one task card on each student’s desk. For easier recording, place the cards in numerical order. Give each student one copy of a sheet to record answers.
Each student will read the question on the activity card on his/her desk and will record the answer. After a length of time (approximately 1 minute),a signal is given for the students to scoot to the next desk. The signal may simply be the teacher saying “move” or a noise such as a bell. The procedure repeats at each desk. The activity continues until all students end up at the desks where they began the activity.

If you discover your students need practice going over definitions and rules related to pronouns, check out these FREE foldable graphic organizers. Each chapter includes one organizer. Here again, the organizers may be used as a stand alone activity independent from the book. Pronoun organizers are included with Chapters 5-9 in the June 2015 Monday Blog Posts.
