DAY 1 Pronouns have three cases. 1. Nominative case is used for subject and predicate pronouns. She went to the store. The winners were Kyle and I. 2. Objective case is used for direct and indirect objects and objects of prepositions. Les saw her ride away. Give the toy to me. 3. Possessive case is used to show ownership. Tonya rode her bike. This is our house. *Possessive pronouns used before nouns include my, your, his, her, its, our, and their.
DAY 2 Some possessive pronouns can stand alone and are used in place of nouns. These possessive pronouns are mine, yours, his, hers, ours, and theirs. Possessive pronouns that can stand on their own differ from possessives that precede nouns. My becomes mine, your becomes yours, her become hers, our becomes ours, and their becomes theirs. That is my book. That book is mine.
DAY 2 Use quotation marks to set off someone’s exact words from the rest of the sentence. Capitalize the first word in a question. Use commas and periods inside quotation marks. Use a comma before the quotation when the speaker’s name comes first. Use a comma, a question mark, or an exclamation point before the quotation mark when the speaker’s name comes last.
