Use this resource to practice identifying subjects and predicates to your students! There are 4 activities included and an informational poster. Want more sentence activities? Check out the grammar bundle!
- 1 set matching cards: Students will use the image card to match a subject card and predicate card.
- 1 sorting worksheet: Students will read the phrases and sort them into subjects or predicates. Three versions included for the terms naming part/telling part, subject/predicate and who/did what. It was helpful when my students were still unsure of subjects and predicates to ask if a sentence had a ‘who’ and a ‘did what’ in it.
- 1 cut and glue worksheet: Students will read the phrases and match a subject to its predicate. Three sets included for different terms.
- 1 build a sentence activity: Students will pick a subject card and a predicate card. Then they will build a sentence using those cards and illustrate it. To encourage students to write more elaborate sentences, add in the ‘where’ cards to incorporate in their sentences.
- 1 informational poster: Print in a large format and display in the classroom to remind students about the parts of a sentence.
What skill is covered in these activities?
Sentence structure can be very complex. Understanding that every sentence requires a subject and predicate is a necessary foundational skill to build upon as students get older. These activities will help students understand that sentences begin with a naming part (subject), followed by a telling part (predicate). These terms (subject, predicate) are used within this resource along with other variations like naming/telling part and who/did what. Students will be exposed to sentence structure by building sentences using subjects and predicates and differentiating between subjects and predicates.
How should I use this resource in my classroom?
- All activities included are appropriate for independent work, partner work or a small group activity.
- The informational poster is meant to be displayed in the classroom for student reference.
