Here's a fun way to review subject and verb agreement. In this game, there are three rounds. In each round, students identify the correct verb form. In rounds two and three, they must also identify the subject. The sentences increase in difficulty and complexity with the use of compound subjects, intervening phrases, and indefinite pronouns.
Additionally, to make this game relevant, the sentences discuss inspiring world figures including Nelson Mandela, Malala Yousafzai, and Pope Francis. Please note that for the purpose of this review, many of the sentences are written in the historical present tense.
Research shows that students often learn best when they can move, and this game motivates them with their love of sports.
When you put your students in heterogeneous groups for a game with friendly competition, it is an excellent way to meet the needs of all of your students and reward them for their success.
There are four slides that review concepts at the beginning of the game, so this makes excellent guided practice after instruction for subject and verb agreement. Then follow the game with independent practice. The power point includes the following slides: four review slides, rules for the students, game slides, teacher instructions, and key.
