Relative Pronouns & Adjective Clauses Anchor Chart

Monday, March 30, 2015
If you are a fourth-grade teacher who lives in a state that has adopted the Common Core standards, you are familiar with relative adverbs and relative pronouns. As you can see by the anchor chart below, relative pronouns are fairly simple to identify in sentences. However, writing sentences with relative pronouns are a bit trickier to write. First of all, there's that pesky "who vs. whom" issue. In some respects, the "that vs. which" issue is even more muddled. Second, sometimes you use commas before and after adjective clauses, and sometimes you do not.

 I use an anchor chart to review relative pronouns to students. As you can see below, I have students help identify the relative pronoun, the entire adjective clause, and the noun that is being modified. It is important to have students identify the entire adjective clause because that will later help them determine whether they need to use commas before and after the clause.
