SUBJECT- whom or what the sentence is about. Ex. musician, player, he, playground, lake, jacket
PREDICATE- what action the subject does or links the subject by telling what the subject is. Ex. played, struggled, flapping, is, were, am
The talented musician played the violin.
He struggled to catch the ball.
My thick jacket was very warm.
5. Provide independent practice for your students. Have students identify the subjects and predicates in sentences. Task cards are a great way to give students practice in centers. You are welcome to use the samples below when creating practice for your students.
6. Last, give students an independent assessment and track their progress. This useful information can be used with forming small instructional groups or end of year review.
I hope these ideas will help you and your students!
