Let's face it... object pronouns are a pain in the butt to learn. Direct/indirect/location/person/numbers...you get the drift.
I have found, however, that by using a cross, it is easy to teach the students all of them on one piece of paper.
The pronouns are in four different categories:
1) Direct Objects
2) Indirect Objects (preposition + person)
3) Preposition + non person or location
4) Quantity or De
So I lay it out on the board as such:
Each section gets a number (which is easy to reference later when asking
students "okay, which section of the cross are we in?") as well as the
pronouns themselves, when to use them, and a few examples. When I teach
object pronouns, I like to take it step by step. First, I ask what can
we take out of the sentence. Then I ask what section of the cross we
are going to. Then, when applicable, I ask which pronoun we are using.
Then I ask where it is placed.
The nice thing with the cross also applies to pronoun order. When there are multiple pronouns used, the order goes as such:
2) section 1
3) section 2
4) section 3
5) section 4
I've noticed this works very well, as it is extremely visual for the
kids. You can just see them referencing it in their heads whenever we
are working with this topic.
