7th Grade Language Arts / Lesson 2.2.2: Pronouns(Day 2)
What are Object pronouns
Object pronouns are pronouns that can serve the following functions in a sentence :
Object Pronouns as Direct Objects
Example : Mrs. Gomez picked Jen.
Jen is the direct object because it shows who received the action of the verb "picked."
Let's substitute an object pronoun (remember all those colored words on the second slide?) for the direct object "Jen".
Object Pronouns as Object of the Preposition
Prepositions relate a noun or pronoun to another word in the sentence.
Example : The ball went past John.
The word "past" is a preposition, and it relates the "noun" John to the word "went."
"John" is the object of the preposition.
Let's substitute an object pronoun for the object of the preposition, John.
Some Commonly Used Prepositions
These are just a few prepositions. You will learn others when we study prepositions in more detail.
