Our direct and indirect object chart is a compulsive print. With super simple definitions and crystal clear examples, it pretty much spells out the watchword for the little ones in this DO & IO journey.
Having known what a direct object is, kids would now find it easy to spot DOs in sentences. This worksheet is loaded with 10 sentences, all of which have a direct object each. Have fun identifying direct objects!
Folks, it's time to scout for indirect objects. If you apply the mantra laid out earlier in the DO & IO chart, it's not as tall an order as it might appear to be. Watch your step while you're out hunting for IOs though!
This direct object PDF reinforces the DO learning with another set of ten sentences. Children first identify and underline the verbs and then circle the direct objects. It's a game won with hard work!
This worksheet gets kids busy finding and labeling DOs and IOs in every given sentence. Remember an IO is always a person, while a DO isn't. C'mon, show your grammatic mettle!
This worksheet gets our young heroes rolling on a circling spree, as they find out the nouns used as indirect objects in every sentence. Be thorough with your chart, and all's going to be well and wisely put.
A direct object needn't necessarily be a noun at all times; often pronouns take the shape of direct objects too. In this printable PDF, children complete the sentences using the right pronouns as DOs.
It's not just direct objects that pronouns can be, they can be indirect objects too. Here, kids complete the sentences using the correct pronoun from parentheses.
A compound direct object means multiple objects receiving the verb's action simultaneously. In this printable PDF, children read the sentences and write the compound objects in the space provided.
When there are two or more people receiving the direct object, we feel the presence of a compound indirect object (CIO) there. Let children identify and underline the CIO in each sentence.
The good news is that every indirect object can be rewritten as a prepositional phrase. The latter may sound easier too. In this engaging PDF, the little grammarians convert IOs into prepositional phrases.
Diagramming enables kids to understand each and every grammatic bit in a sentence. Use this worksheet to help kids practice diagramming sentences with direct and indirect objects.
