IV. Practice Assimilation
Shoot That Ball!
There will be 3 baskets labeled YOU, YOUR and YOURS in front of the room. The students will be divided into 5 groups. Each group will receive 10 different colored balls. There will be incomplete sentences on the board that will be revealed one by one. After the teacher gives the signal, the first person in front of the line will “shoot” the ball to complete the sentence. Each member will take turns in shooting the ball until everyone has participated. The group with the most number of points at the end of the game wins.
Read the paragraph carefully. Choose a pronoun from the box to complete the sentences. You can use the pronouns more than once.
