19 NotesSubject Verb Agreement When the subject of your sentence is singular the verb is also singular. The cat = singular Sings = singular The cat sings. This is a good sentence because the subject and verb are both singular.
20 NotesPlural noun: there are many of this noun. End in an –s Ex: Cats Singular verb: almost always end in an –s Sings
21 Teacher TipStep 1: Underline the Subject. Step 2: Circle the Verb. Step 3: If your subject has an –s at the end, put “pl” over the subject. Step 4: If your verb has an –s at the end, put “sing” over the verb. Step 5: If both your subject and verb agree—they are both “sing” or both “pl” then you have no problem. Step 6: If your subject and verb do not agree, change one of them so that they agree.
22 Partner PracticeLabel the nouns and verbs of these sentences as “sing” or “pl” If they agree, move on. If they do not agree, change one of them so that they do agree. Hint: all it takes is adding an –s to make a noun plural and dropping an –s to make a verb plural.First, model the teacher tip.
