Sample Problems

(1)

What is subject-verb agreement? Subject-verb agreement is when a noun matches the tense of a verb. For example, “He wash his clothes” does not have subject-verb agreement.

(2)

What is the subject of a sentence? The subject of the sentence contains the first noun in the sentence.

(3)

What are pronouns? Pronouns are words that take the place of nouns such as he, she, etc.

(4)

What are adjectives and compound words? Adjectives are describing words. Compound words are two words that make up one word such as sunshine.

(5)

What are articles? Articles are used to clarify if a noun is specific or not. Some examples of articles are a, an, the, etc.

Learning Tips

(1)

Most students learn subject-verb agreement from listening to see if the sentence sounds right rather than learning rules. So have your child read a sentence out loud when they are deciding if it has subject-verb agreement.

(2)

At the end of a reading session have your child practice identifying adjectives in what they read. Make it a game by telling them it’s a scavenger hunt. Give them a time limit and have them find all the adjectives they can in the chapter they read.

(3)

The best way for a child to learn pronouns is for them to use them in their own writing. Have your child go over a writing assignment they did in class. Have them look for places where they could have used pronouns.

(4)

At the end of a reading session have your child practice identifying compound words in what they read. Make it a game by telling them it’s a scavenger hunt. Give them a time limit and have them find all the compound words they can in the chapter they read.

(5)

Sometimes may not know the name of a skill like subject-verb agreement. However, don’t assume that this means they do not know how to do it. Instead give them a subject-verb agreement problem to try. If they get a couple correct, than they mastered the skill even if they don’t remember its formal name.
