1 Warm Up

BrainPop
From $220

Students will watch the Brainpop video on Subjects and Predicates.  Prior to watching the video, distribute the vocabulary handout and review the vocabulary terms with students.  Students should complete the vocabulary handout as they watch the video.  It is helpful to play the video twice so students have ample opportunity to hear and write the definitions.  After the video has been played twice, review the definitions and make sure all students have written the correct information.

Student Instructions

Students should complete the vocabulary handout as they watch the video.

2 Practice

NoRedInk
Free, Paid

After reviewing subjects and predicates, students should complete the "Components of a Sentence I" lesson to practice identifying subjects and predicates.  The teacher must create the lesson on No Red Ink and can determine how many questions, skill level, etc.

Student Instructions

3 Formative Assessment

Activity: Assessing

You may create an exit ticket to assess how well students are able to identify subjects and predicate.  You can write 2-3 sentences and have students circle the subject and underline the predicate.  After reviewing the exit tickets, the teacher can decide the next steps for instruction.  They may be ready for a summative assessment or they may need more review.  Some students may be ready for a more challenging task, while others may need some small group direct instruction to review.
