Subject-Verb Agreement

Subject-Verb Agreement

Using correct subject-verb agreement is a key skill of a good speaker and writer. Be sure to practice correct usage with your child in both conversation and writing tasks. Give your child example sentences in which he has to choose between a singular and plural form of a verb. Engage him in discussion about how and why he knows the subject and verb agree in the sentence.
Understanding the rules of subject-verb agreement is important to building strong writers! As a background for learning how to ensure the subject and verb in a sentence agree, students must have a foundational understanding of the subject and predicate in sentences. Support your students by giving them the opportunity to choose the correct verb to complete a sentence. Also, give your students practice fixing incorrect sentences as well as writing their own with correct subject-verb agreement.

Cause & Effect

Cause & Effect

Support your child as he becomes a critical thinker and a strong reader. Identifying cause and effect relationships in texts is an important part of reading comprehension. Use the vocabulary "cause" and "effect" at home often, as kids often forget which is which. In everyday situations, ask your child questions such as, "What happened?" (the effect) and "Why did that happen?" (the cause).
Good readers use critical thinking skills and questioning as they navigate a text. To find the relationship between key ideas in a story, teach your young readers to ask, "What happened?" and "Why did that happen?" When they can determine causes and effects, they boost their reading comprehension. Be sure to support your students by teaching them strategies to differentiate between the cause and the effect. These can be tricky for students!
