Provide students with additional grammar practice with a card game focusing on singular and plural subject-verb agreement.
Need a Subject-Verb Agreement Game?
The rules of subject-verb agreement are clear. Verbs change depending on whether the subject of a sentence is singular or plural. As adults, we understand this concept.However, students struggle to make their subjects and verbs agree, especially when to using singular and plural subjects in their sentences. This printable and editable subject-verb agreement card game includes instructions and twenty game cards for play.
This game can be played in two ways. Students can use the cards to play a game of Concentration, or use the alternate rules and turn it into a game of Go Fish!
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
- Whole-class review (via smartboard)
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.
- 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.
