When we are making statements, we often need to describe the relative position of something (an event, a person, or an object) to the speaker. The position could be used to express a physical distance or a psychological relation. Words that help us express this relative location are classified as Demonstratives. When a sentence is focused on an event the near (this and these) demonstrative refers to the present and the far (that and those) demonstrative will, most times, refer to the past. They are often placed directly before the noun or the adjective that shifts the noun. They are also very commonly placed directly before numbers that signify quantities. These worksheets will work students through the use of the demonstrative with many different parts of speech.
