Get Point-Savvy with Demonstrative Pronouns: An Engaging Classroom Game!


Demonstrative pronouns are words that point to specific things or people. They include "this," "that," "these," and "those." In this game, you will practice identifying and using demonstrative pronouns in sentences.


  • Identify demonstrative pronouns in sentences.
  • Use demonstrative pronouns correctly in sentences.


  • Whiteboard or chalkboard
  • Markers or chalk
  • Index cards
  • Timer


  1. Divide the class into two teams.
  2. Write a sentence on the board that includes a demonstrative pronoun, such as "This is my favorite book."
  3. The first team to raise their hand and correctly identify the demonstrative pronoun in the sentence earns a point for their team.
  4. If a team answers correctly, they have the opportunity to earn an additional point by correctly using a demonstrative pronoun in a new sentence.
  5. Set a timer for 5-10 minutes, and continue playing until the time is up.
  6. The team with the most points at the end of the game wins.


Students will be assessed based on their ability to correctly identify and use demonstrative pronouns in sentences during the game.


As an extension activity, students can create their own sentences using demonstrative pronouns and share them with the class. Alternatively, students can create a story that incorporates demonstrative pronouns.


To add more challenge to the game, you can use sentences that include multiple demonstrative pronouns, or sentences that include other types of pronouns. You can also add a penalty for teams that answer incorrectly, such as deducting a point.


After the game, ask students to reflect on what they learned about demonstrative pronouns.
What was challenging about the game? 
What strategies did they use to identify and use demonstrative pronouns?


This game can be adapted for different grade levels by adjusting the complexity of the sentences used. You can also modify the game to include other types of grammar or language concepts.
