As a professional, I understand the importance of teaching subject verb agreement to young students. It is a basic grammar concept that they need to learn in order to communicate effectively in writing and speaking. In this article, I will provide some exercises that can be used to teach subject verb agreement to class 3 students.

Before we begin, let`s review what subject verb agreement is. It simply means that the subject and verb in a sentence must agree in number. For example, if the subject is singular, the verb must be singular. If the subject is plural, the verb must be plural.

Now, let`s move on to the exercises.

Exercise 1: Matching Game

Create a matching game using flashcards or index cards. On one set of cards write subject nouns, such as «dog,» «cat,» «boy,» «girl,» «teacher,» «student,» etc. On the other set of cards, write verbs that agree with the subjects, such as «barks,» «meows,» «plays,» «runs,» «teaches,» «learns,» etc. Have the students match the subject noun card with the correct verb card.

Exercise 2: Fill in the Blank

Give the students a sentence with a missing verb. For example, «The _____ barks loudly.» Have the students choose the correct verb to fill in the blank, such as «dog,» «dogs,» or «doggy.» This exercise can be made more challenging by using more complex sentences and verbs.

Exercise 3: Circle the Correct Verb

Give the students a sentence with two verb options. For example, «The boy _____ (plays, play) soccer every day.» Have the students circle the correct verb that agrees with the subject. This exercise can be made more challenging by using irregular verbs or more complex sentences.

Exercise 4: Subject-Verb Agreement Sort

Create a sorting activity using index cards. On one set of cards, write sentences with correct subject-verb agreement. On the other set of cards, write sentences with incorrect subject-verb agreement. Have the students sort the cards into two piles, one for correct and one for incorrect.

These exercises are just a few examples of how to teach subject verb agreement to class 3 students. Remember to keep the exercises age-appropriate and engaging to maintain the students` interest and attention. With practice and repetition, students will be able to master this important grammar concept.
