Introduction

(5 minutes)
  • Engage students by reading the following sentences aloud to the class: Rob went to the store. Rob bought bread. Rob also bought milk and eggs. Rob forgot to buy ice cream before Rob went home.
  • Ask students why it was funny.
  • Suggest to students that it sounded very robotic.
  • Reread it in a robot voice to engage students in figuring out how to fix the robotic mess.
  • Ask students how they can fix the sentences so it doesn’t sound like a robot.
  • Explain to students that good grammar includes speaking and writing in a way that is not robotic. To avoid sounding like a robot, we use pronouns to replace nouns that are repeated.
