Singular/Plural Subject–Verb Agreement Board Game

Teach Starter Publishing
Google Slide, PDF | 4 pages | Years: 3 - 5

Improve sentence structure and grammar skills with a board game that focuses on singular and plural subject-verb agreement.

Looking for Subject-Verb Agreement Activities?

Subject-verb agreement is a difficult concept for many students to grasp. They struggle to make their subjects and verbs agree, especially when using singular and plural subjects in their sentences. This subject-verb agreement board game provides your students with an opportunity for fun and engaging practice in the classroom.

The game focuses on the student’s ability to correctly use singular and plural words in sentences. 

How is the Game Played?

  1. Students spin the spinner and move that number of spaces along the board.
  2. Using the word they landed on, students use that verb in a complete sentence. If the sentence is correct, they remain in their place. If the sentence is incorrect, they return to their previous position.
  3. Play continues until a student reaches the FINISH line.

Tips for Differentiation + Scaffolding 

A team of dedicated, experienced educators created this resource for students to work on as an English Group Activity.  

You could also use this game as:

  • a lesson warm-up
  • a lesson wrap-up
  • a fast finishers activity
  • a homework assignment.

For struggling readers and writers, try the following differentiation ideas:

  • provide a subject-verb agreement anchor chart or other reference materials for students to refer to during independent practice
  • partner struggling readers with other students to assist in the reading component of the activity.
