Why and how is a song about Subjects & Predicates effective for students?
Complete sentences are sentences that contain both a subject and a predicate. The concept of the complete sentence is important in helping children analyze and revise their own writing. Learning what subjects and predicates are can be made engaging and memorable by exploring many of the activities that add a “silly sentence” element of fun to the task. The catchy melody, combined with the definition of concepts within this video makes this skill fun and easy to learn.

Subject and Predicate Matching Game
Subject and Predicate Match
Allow the child to make his/her own subject and predicate matching game by creating 10 sentences. For each sentence, he/she should write the subject on one index card, and the predicate on the other. He/she should flip all the cards over to play his/her own matching game. (Point out that the verb in the sentence is always the beginning of the predicate.) There is always great fun in playing subject/predicate matching games when the subject and predicate are not a match. For example, "The football player drank the bottle of warm milk" can be a funny combination when subjects and predicates don't match up!

"I've worked at the university as an educator, and now supervising teachers, for the past 45 years. The way she integrates these subjects with music is one of the most effective learning tools in education today. The way her music is integrated into one cohesive plan is genius. Perhaps one day she'll be able to expand her teaching style beyond the classroom walls."
