Product Description
Is the topic "Subjects and Predicates" a new or particularly challenging topic for your students? If so, you might want to check out this activity that will provide your students with a visual reference when considering subjects and predicates within sentences.

This activity provides a hands-on, creative way for your students to practice identifying the subjects and predicates within sentences on a worksheet. After they've identified the subject and predicate within a sentence, they write the subject on a train engine, and they write the predicate on a train caboose. The finished products make a unique bulletin board or fun school hallway display! It can also be used as a novel entry in an interactive notebook!

I begin this lesson by using the included TEACHING POSTER and watching a subject/predicate video on youtube that features "subject and predicate trains".

Next, I put the ADDITIONAL PRACTICE WORKSHEET under the doc camera, and we work together to find subjects and predicates within sentences.

Then, I guide my students in assembing an INTERACTIVE NOTEBOOK page that focuses on subjects and predicates. (This product includes train clip art and directions for that page.)

Finally, I give students the CRAFTIVITY WORKSHEET and they complete the craftivity.

This resource also contains the engine and caboose images in case you want to make the anchor chart featured in this blog post: Subject and Predicate Anchor Chart (Click HERE).

I designed this activity 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".

Student-friendly directions are included so that you can place the directions under your document camera, and students can refer to them as they complete the project. (An answer key is also included.)

I also created a matching PowerPoint that extends the train theme. Subjects and Predicates PowerPoint: Train Theme
