Many young students have difficulty using correct gender pronouns. This is a simple matching game that helps kids discriminate “he” from “she” and correctly use these pronouns in simple sentences.


There are 30 HE-SHE card pairs. The back of the cards differs according to pronoun gender. To play the game, print pages 4-23 double-sided. Laminate and cut out. Select the HE-SHE pairs you want and lay them face down, with SHE cards on one side and HE cards on another. Have the student pick a card from the SHE side and describe the picture using the Pronoun SHE. Then have the student try to find the corresponding card from the HE side. The student with the most matches at the end of the game wins.
