Provide students with additional grammar practice with a sorting activity focusing on singular and plural subject-verb agreement.
Sorting Out Subject-Verb Agreement in a Snap!
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 sorting activity includes instructions, 24 cards, and two category headings.
This sort focuses on determining whether or not a sentence contains correct subject-verb agreement. Students are directed to sort the sentence cards into correct and incorrect categories.

Tips for Differentiation + Scaffolding
In addition to independent student work time, use this worksheet as an activity for:
