Subjects and Predicates

Use the Subject/Predicate rule:
who- what
is doing
Use many examples get students to participate
John is walking fast.
Mary is walking slow.

Write examples on the board, they love to go to the board!! Today they had a sub/predicate worksheet where the subject was given and they had to decide what was the correct ending for the sentence. By cutting out the strips and pasting it to the correct form.

Write silly sentences on the board or on a handout to get them to fix them. (word order) EX:
Pam water. likes to drink
the juice. drinks Mike

I also get them to practice using their Spelling words to practice writing complete sentences. (5)They must begin with a new word for each sentence and use the correct punctuation.

Hope this helps!!

all sentences need a "who" and a "do". It helps them create more complete sentences.

I put motions/movements when I teach this concept. We put our hands over our head to signify the capital letter that begins a sentence. Then we use our thumbs and point to ourselves meaning every sentences has a "who." Then we march in place to mean that every sentence had a "what it does" and then we punch out our fist to signify a punctuation mark to end the sentence.

But not too boring is the Evan-Moor Grammar and Punctuation Rules.

They do a good job.

Love your actions Room22! I might have to borrow that! I also do silly sentences. I put it on the Smart board and use people from the school as the subjects. I like to make them as silly as possible, because they really get in to making sentences about the principal doing crazy things! They just drag the sentence parts to form a complete thought and we read them aloud to see if they make sense. Of course there is one way that will make normal sentences, but we get to that at the end!
