Hi guys, i'm introducing object pronouns at school and prepared this material to work with my students.
Hope you like it! :)

What are object pronouns?

An object pronoun, also called objective pronoun, functions as the object of a verb or preposition, as distinguished from a subject or subjective pronoun, which is the subject of a verb.

Defining an Object Pronoun

Let’s break down just what an objective noun is, using an example sentence:

Mary ate the ice cream.

Mary is the subject of the sentence. The predicate is “ate the ice cream.” The verb is “ate,” and “the ice cream” is the objective noun. Now, let’s replace “the ice cream” with a pronoun to make an object pronoun:

“Mary ate it.”

This sentence functions the same way as the first example sentence – except “it” functions as an object pronoun. Simply put, the pronoun is being affected in some way by the “main noun,” or the subject, of the sentence. It shouldn’t be too much more complicated than that. Got the idea?

How to Make Object Pronouns

“I” becomes “me,”

“You” stays as “you”

“he” becomes “him”

“she” becomes “her”

“it” stays as “it”

“they” becomes “them”

Subject Object
First Person Singular
Second Person Singular you you
Third Person Singular he / she / it him / her / it

First Person Plural
we us
Second Person Plural
you you
Third Person Plural
they them

Object pronouns come after either a verb (e.g "like") or a preposition (e.g "to").
