Introduce your students to the topic of subjects and predicates with this 37-slide PowerPoint. Throughout this PowerPoint, I use a train engine (to represent the subject) and box car (to represent the predicate). I have found that many students benefit from using this visual reference when considering subjects and predicates within sentences.

This PowerPoint contains 37 slides. It begins by defining subjects and predicates and identifying their typical location within sentences. Following the introduction where students are guided through the process of how to find the subject and predicate within a sentence, students are given the opportunity to identify the subject and predicate within 15 practice sentences. At the end of the PowerPoint, students are presented with sentences that missing either a subject or a predicate. Students must determine what is missing and then revise the sentence.

***A PowerPoint companion handout is also included in this file. Students can follow along and record answers on this handout as you progress through the PowerPoint! The companion handout is available in both printable format or digital format. The digital version is compatible with Google Slides and is ideal for distance learning.**

Also, you DO have my permission to convert this PowerPoint to a Google Slides format to share with your students.

Slides 1-9: Cover and Introduction

Slides 10-14: Teaching Slides: Finding Subjects and Predicates in Complete Sentences

Slides 15-30: Practice Slides: Finding Subjects and Predicates in Complete Sentences

Slides 31-37: Identifying the Missing Part of a Sentence and Revising It

I designed this PowerPoint 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 I plan to simply remind them that they are missing "the subject engine on their sentence train".


Note: This product only covers COMPLETE subjects and COMPLETE predicates. Simple subjects and simple predicates are not introduced in this PowerPoint.
