Subject, Object, and Indefinite Pronouns - 6th Grade Grammar

Kinds of Pronouns

A subject pronoun (I, you, he, she, it, we, you, they) is the subject of a sentence:
        He runs every morning. 
        Gabriella and I organized the book drive.
        They also made posters to announce the book drive.
        We asked each student in our school to donate one book.

An object pronoun (me, you, him, her, it, us, you, them) is the object of a verb or a preposition:
        Mr. Coleman will bring them
        The class helped us decorate bins to collect the books.

A reflexive pronoun (myself, yourself, himself, herself, itself, ourselves, yourselves, themselves) is an object that is the same as the subject of the sentence:
        Milan made herself lunch. 

An intensive pronoun emphasizes its antecedent but does not act as an object:
        Ivy herself drew the picture.

Uses of Subject and Object Pronouns

Use the subjective case, I, you, he, she, we and they, for pronouns that follow a linking verb, including forms of be. Subject pronouns are in the subjective case.
        The last to arrive was I
        We had a sixth-grade field day at school, with awards for the winners.
        The person who handed out the awards was I.
        He won the top award for winning three races.
        The second place winner was she.

Use the objective case, me, you, him, her, us, them, for pronouns that are direct and indirect objects and objects of a preposition. Object pronouns are in the objective case. 
        Andrew gave him the pen.
        I handed him the award.
        He thanked me for it.
        I recognized her for jumping the farthest.

Proper Use of Pronouns

Use a subject pronoun when the pronoun is the subject of a sentence or clause; use an object pronoun when the pronoun is the object of a verb or preposition. 

Use the correct form of a reflexive pronoun: himself, not hisself; ourselves, not ourself; themselves, not themself or theirself. 

Use a reflexive pronoun only when it refers to an antecedent. 
        Keith made himself lunch.
