Practice using 'is' and 'are' correctly using a set of subject-verb agreement task cards.
Is or Are? Subject-Verb Agreement Activity
Writing with the correct subject-verb agreement is a key grammar skill. The use of ‘is’ versus ‘are’ may seem like a small detail, but students truly struggle with the concept.
This set of task cards allows students to practice this skill and receive feedback on their sentence structure. Through this activity, students will gain the ability to write complete and correct sentences and apply common subject-verb agreement rules.
To use, students read the sentence on the card and complete the sentence using ‘is’ or ‘are’. Students can record their answers and check for accuracy using the answer key.
Tips for Differentiation + Scaffolding
In addition to individual student work time, use this set of grammar task cards to enhance learning through guided writing groups or whole-class lessons.
If you have a mixture of above and below-level learners, check out these suggestions for keeping students on track with the concepts.
🆘 Support Struggling Students
Provide less-confident students with supplementary resources, such as a poster or anchor chart, to support them in completing the activity.
➕ Challenge Fast Finishers
Encourage fast finishers to continue working on subject-verb agreement by editing and revising their own writing pieces or by creating additional task cards to go along with the set.
