    Grammar

    It is I/me who arrived early.
    How can I explain to my Grade 3 students that it is I not me?


    Please leave your number with I/me?
    Why is it me? can someone please give me an explanation for this. Thanks

    Re: Grammar

    Who arrived early? I did. I arrived early.

    Who wiil you leave your number with? You will leave it with me.

    Try and think of different ways to say the same thing to decide what is the subject and what is the object of a sentence.

    I'm not sure how to simplify it for grade 3 because I teach older students but I hope it helps a bit.
