Subject-Verb Agreement Games Make Grammar Fun!

Vroom, vroom! Move forward into the sentence structure fun with this Subject-Verb Stomp! Game. Students will practice building sentences with correct subject-verb agreement while moving around the board in a race to the finish line. 

This board game contains 27 cards for quick and easy setup, which is excellent for small group activities or reviews at the beginning or end of a unit. The game cards include questions regarding the following subject pronouns:

Students choose a game piece and set up a paperclip/pencil spinner to play. Each player spins the spinner and moves their game piece forward that many spaces. Once on their spot, they must choose a card the same color as their landing spot. If they get the question correct, they remain in their place. If they answer incorrectly, they must return to their previous position. The first student to the finish line wins.

Students will learn to write sentences with the correct subject-verb agreement with these building sentence structure activities.
