Hey there! Are you on the hunt for subject and object pronouns worksheets for your lesson plans?
Teaching English grammar can be a bit of a challenge – even when your student already has a good handle on the English language.
Why do we say things the way we do in conversation?
Why do some things “sound right,” while other things don’t?
This pronuon lesson is a great way to teach these grammar concepts behind the way we all speak and write!
In the following worksheet, you will find four printable pages that will walk your student through these two different types of pronouns.
****Don’t stress, you can download and print these pages in PDF format today! There are super simple directions at the bottom of this post to help you out. No email addressed or other personal information needed 🙂

This first colorful grammar worksheet will focus on introducing the concept of subject pronouns.
At the top of the page, there is a brief definition of subject pronouns. They take the place of the nouns that are the subject of the sentence.
Examples of subject pronouns: I, he, she, it, you, we, and they.
Before completing the worksheet, do a quick review with your student on basic sentence structure (subject and predicate).
Make sure they can identify the subject of each sentence on the worksheet, a 1st grade or 2nd grade skill. Then have them choose from the word bank the correct pronoun to go in the blank.
Many kids will be able to complete these sentences becasue they know what “sounds right.”
But be sure to challenge them be asking *why* they chose their answer.
This second worksheet offers some extra practice with subject pronouns.
To complete, children will have to rewrite the sentence, replacing the underlined words with the appropriate pronouns.
Allow the child to use the word bank from the previous printable if you think he will need it.
At the bottom of the page, the student even has a chance to write their own sentence using a subject pronoun. Encourage the student to be creative!

This next worksheet introduces the concept of object pronouns!
To understand this grammar concept, the student should be familiar with finding the object of a verb and the object of a preposition.
What exactly does that mean? For a quick refresher, the object of the verb is the noun that receives the action of the verb in the sentence.
For example, let’s look at this sentence: Rachel baked a cake with her.
What did Rachel bake? The cake! So cake is the object of the verb. Who did she bake it with? Her! So “her” is the object of the preposition.
This is a higher 3rd grade or 4th grade skill, so make sure the child has properly reviewed it before going forward.
Now, let’s move on to the object pronoun. An object pronoun takes the place of the object of the verb (and sometimes the object of the preposition).
Examples of Object Pronouns: him, her, it, me, you, us, and them.
To complete the worksheet, read the directions with your child. First, have the child underline the verbs and prepositions in the sentence.
Then have the child circle the correct object pronoun, being very careful not to circle the wrong type of pronoun: possessive pronouns, subject pronouns, etc.
If your young learners stumbled through the previous worksheet, no worries!
Here is another opportunity to work on the skill and get in some great practice.
Your kids may find it much easier to complete these gap-fill sentences with the correct word because they will recognize what “sounds right.”
Continue to challenge them by asking what noun the pronoun is replacing. How is it different from a subject pronoun?
At the bottom of the worksheet, have the student complete each sentence with the best word. Then have them check the box if an object pronoun was used.
If the student starts to get confused, have him do a light diagraming of the sentence. Break down the subject and predicate of the sentence. Where are the nouns and verbs? Prepositions and adjectives?
This process will help your student break the sentence down and focus on what the pronoun is replacing.
Provide an answer key to allow the student to grade and correct his own work. If there are any errors, review the questions with the student.

I hope you and your student enjoy using these sheets as a supplement to your regular curriculum.
They may be surprised to find out how many pronouns are out there!
Their early writing skills probably started with the correct use of capital letters and punctuation. Then they moved on to other things like subjects, personal pronouns, verbs, adjectives, and predicates.
Adverbs, prepositions, and articles, oh my!
It may not always be the most exciting school subject, but proper grammar will lay an outstanding foundation for future language skills.
