Grade Levels: K-3

These classroom activities are designed to complement the Subject and Verb Agreement topic on BrainPOP Jr.

Simon Says
Play a version of “Simon Says” with the whole class. You can change up the directions to explore subject and verb agreement. For example, you may tell the class, “I say, ‘Clap your hands two times'” or invite a volunteer and say, “He says, ‘Hop on one foot.'” Students can write down the directions in their notebooks, paying special attention to subject and verb agreement.

Mad Libs

Have small groups or pairs do a “mad lib” together. They can write their own short story or paragraph or copy a passage out of a book, and remove a few of the subjects and verbs. Then have partners name singular or plural subjects and verbs to complete the story. Have teams read their stories to the class.
