This sentence-level writing resource and center was designed to reinforce, reteach, and/or practice the concept of subject and predicate with beginning writers. Use this writing resource after students have learned about subject and predicate, or to teach students about the concept of subject and predicate!

Each of the 18 cards contains a subject and a predicate. Students will create a sentence that uses the subject and the predicate on the card. A complete sentence contains a subject and a predicate. The subject is what or whom the sentence is about. The predicate tells us something about the subject.

Understanding that every sentence contains a subject and a predicate will help your writers not only understand what a complete sentence is, but it will help them create and compose sentences of their own.

This sentence-level work is important to the foundational skills of your writers. If we want our students to be successful, competent writers for paragraphs and essays, we need to first explicitly teach them the foundation of writing pieces – the sentence!

This resource now includes a DIGITAL GOOGLE SLIDE for every writing card!

Display each question digitally for all your students to see. There is also space to type or write your answers right on each slide!

Ideas for Using this Resource:

  • · Use the resource as a teacher-facilitated oral language activity. Use the cards to orally create a complete sentence for each card. Oral writing, or verbally stating the complete sentence aloud, is an important foundational skill for beginning writers.
  • · Use the resource as a whole-group practice activity. Complete each card together as a class. You can choose to model writing the complete sentence on chart paper or under a document camera. You may also choose to create sentences with the students and then allow them time to write sentences on their recording sheets or papers.
  • Use the resource as an independent writing center after students have had time to practice the skill of creating a sentence with a subject and predicate. Labels for a title and directions have been included.
  • Use the resource within a small-group center. Take turns completing and then passing the cards around the table, or complete each card together as a group.

Can my younger students complete these activities verbally?

Yes! In fact, it’s a great idea for ALL students to complete the sentence level activities verbally before writing or recording the sentences. Younger writers may wish to stop at the oral language level and simply practice verbally stating complete sentences.

Differentiated Recording Sheets and Options

You may have each student write the complete sentence on any paper you choose, such as a notebook or journal, on handwriting paper, or on a dry-erase board. If you are completing the activity as a teacher model, you may wish to record the sentence on an easel or chart paper or under a document camera.

You can also use one of the three differentiated recording sheets provided within the resource.

I hope you and your students love this sentence-level writing resource and writing center! Be sure to shop my store for additional sentence level writing resources, and my sentence-level writing bundle!
