Is the topic "Subjects and Predicates" a new or particularly challenging topic for your students? If so, you might want to check out this lesson bundle. It includes a train theme that will provide your students with a visual reference when considering complete subjects and complete predicates within sentences.
This bundle includes many activities that will scaffold your students starting with an introduction and then progressing through guided practice to partner practice to independent practice.
I designed this bundle to help my students understand that a sentence is only complete when it contains a subject and a predicate. After completing this activity, students will have a visual connection in their schema that will hopefully allow them to remember how to write a complete sentence. When students write a sentence missing a subject (as some of my ELL's often do), I plan to simply remind them that they are missing "the subject engine on their sentence train".
It includes the following pieces: (Click on any of the links to take a closer look at any of the items.) Buying these products separately would total $14!
