Provide students with additional subject-verb agreement practice with a worksheet focusing on using DO and DOES correctly.
Subject-Verb Agreement Worksheet — Do or Does?
Good grammar is essential in both speaking and writing, but for some students, it’s not an easy skill to grasp. This worksheet will help your students master the use of the verbs do and does. This printable and editable resource includes instructions, eight fill-in-the-blank questions, and space to write sentences of their own.
This worksheet focuses only on the usage of do and does in composition. Students are directed to complete sentences using each verb correctly. Students will also be given the opportunity to extend their practice by writing a short written response.
An answer key is included with your download to make grading fast and easy!
Tips for Differentiation + Scaffolding
In addition to independent student work time, use this worksheet as an activity for:
- Guided writing groups
- Lesson warm-up
- Lesson wrap-up
- Fast finishers
- Homework assignment
- Whole-class review (via smartboard)
For struggling readers and writers, try the following differentiation ideas:
- Provide an anchor chart or other reference materials for students to refer to during independent practice.
- Complete the activity in a 1:1 setting, or provide small-group instruction.
- Partner struggling readers with other students to assist in the reading component of the activity.
