    Grammar for standardized test 4th grade- relative pronouns

    We completed the pronoun section for Rod and Staff 4th grade. It did not cover relative pronouns. Can you give me some rules for them? We can guess which one sounds right but I don't have a rule to teach her.
    Example:
    The quilt, ___________, is old, belonged to my grandmother.
    A which
    B who
    C whose
    D that

    The field ___________ we play soccer was flooded.
    A which
    B why
    C when
    D where


    Thank you!!

    Relative pronouns aren't taught in R&S until 6th grade. Here are the basic rules from that text:

    Use 'who' or 'whom' in referring to people, and 'which' in referring to animals or objects. 'That' and 'whose' may refer to people, animals, or objects. Use the nominative case 'who' when a relative pronoun is the subject or the predicate nominative in a relative clause. Use the objective case 'whom' when the relative pronoun is the object in a relative clause. Use the possessive case 'whose' when the relative pronoun is a modifier in a relative clause.

    Once again, I'd go with common sense for a 4th grader. What sounds best? She will probably guess correctly just from hearing English every day!

    Cheers,
