Title – “Pop Pronouns”

This is a quick and fun way to review pronouns. After teaching students about personal pronouns, one of the best ways I have found to review them is to have them identify them in songs.
I play the song “Eight Days a Week” or “She Loves You” by the Beatles. I have students make a tally mark every time they hear a personal pronoun. The student that gets the correct number wins a small prize such as a homework pass. Another song that works well are “My Girl” by the Temptations. Basically any song that is easy to understand and has an abundance of personal pronouns works well. This activity can be modified for other parts of speech.
This is not only a great way to review pronouns, but it is also a great way to reinforce listening skills.
