Finding the Subject and Predicate
Students will be able to understand the subject and predicate of a sentence as well as identify sentence fragments.
- Give the definition for subject, the person or thing being discussed in a sentence, and for predicate, the part of the sentence containing a verb and discussing the subject.
- Write an example sentence on the board and underline the subject once and the predicate twice.
- Ask students to write a short sentence in their notebooks and underline the different parts as you did.
- Ask students to share their sentences as you write them on the whiteboard.
