The objective of this activity is to introduce the theme of the conformity of subjects and verbs by creating sentences with the words in the list as subject. VERB RULE OF THE SUBJECT #1 Two or more singular (or plural) subjects connected by a pluralistic subject, which act as a plural subject and take a plural verb (singular + singular = plural). A prepositional sentence can be placed between the subject and the verb. Have you noticed that your students, in particular, are struggling with this point of English grammar? Then you should seriously dedicate one or two whole lessons. Here are some prefabricated learning plans from ESL: if, on the other hand, we actually refer to the individuals within the group, we look at the plural subname. In this case, we use a plural bural. Ask students to identify the subject of each sentence. However, a prepositional sentence inserted between the subject and the verb sometimes complicates the agreement.
