Volume 1 of teach2talk’s™ Pronouns! series of videos
helps teach children to understand and use a variety of basic pronouns,
focusing on the first pronouns which children typically acquire, such I,
you, he, she, it, we and they, me, you, her, him, it, us and them, and
mine, yours, his, hers, its, ours and theirs.
Volume 1 of the Pronouns! covers all of the common
personal pronouns (including their objective, subjective and possessive
forms). Pronouns are extremely important in children’s language
Our Pronouns! series teaches using video modeling, featuring
real children between the ages of five and fifteen. Proper usage of the
pronouns is modeled in a variety of every-day scenarios that will be
familiar to most children. Humor, puppets, costumes and songs are used
to keep children engaged and provide additional reinforcement.
Volume 1 of the Pronouns! series is appropriate for any
child who has not yet mastered the understanding and use of personal
pronouns or who confuses them, as well as children who are just starting
to learn and use pronouns. Children typically begin to develop their
use of personal pronouns between two and three years of age.
Pronouns! was created by a speech language pathologist who has
extensive experience teaching children pronouns and other speech and
language concepts, including through the use of video modeling, which
research has shown to be an effective learning methodology for many
teach2talk Co-Founder Jenny McCarthy, Mom:
important for my son Evan! Evan used to refer to himself as “Evan”
instead of “I”. He also used to also confuse “he” with “she” and “him”
with “her”. It made his language sound very immature, and other children
would laugh at him when he said things wrong. Now that Evan uses and
understands pronouns correctly it’s easier for him to express himself,
and he’s much less frustrated.
teach2talk Co-Founder Sarah Clifford Scheflen, M.S., CCC-SLP, Speech Language Pathologist:
are important building blocks for every child’s functional
communication system. Pronouns, which are used to take the place of
nouns in our speech, allow children to produce sentences that are less
repetitive, more efficient and less cumbersome. Our Pronouns! videos help children learn the meaning of these words and acquire them more quickly.
