Subject Pronouns

The Achilles heel of Spanish class. Don’t know your subject pronouns and you won’t be able to conjugate that verb. A topic that students MUST understand and master if they are to have any success the rest of the year. When I used to teach this topic, I was surprised at how difficult it was for the students. In teaching the grammar of this foreign language, it was evident students were not masters of the topic in English. Because of its important, I make my students retake the quiz until they get an A on it. It is something they need to understand and must know before they can move on to more advanced topics.

Now, when my students get to me, I still find a few that are not sure the difference between ellos and ustedes, or even tú and usted.

Posted above my whiteboard, I have this graphic organizer that I reference whenever a student makes a mistake with a subject pronoun. pronombres sujetoWith this, they can see that if I am talking about “Yo” and I add 1 or more people it becomes the plural “nosotros” or “nosotras”. And that the plural of “tú” and “usted” is “ustedes”.
