Grade: 6
Subject: Language Arts/Reading
Complete Subjects and Complete Predicates
In Language Arts, students will be able to identify parts of speech previously studied, such as nouns and verbs, in order to determine parts of a complete sentence.

Expected Outcome Of This Lesson Plan-
1.The learner will apply conventions of grammar and language usage.
Teacher Objectives-

6.01 The learner will demonstrate an understanding of conventional written and spoken expression by:
1. using phrases & clauses correctly (e.g., prepositional phrases, appositives, dependent and independent clauses).
2. demonstrating the different roles of the parts of speech in sentence construction
3. using pronouns correctly, including clear antecedents and correct case

6.02 Identify and edit errors in spoken and written English by:
1. reviewing and using common spelling rules, applying common spelling patterns, and developing and mastering an individualized list of words that are commonly misspelled
2. developing an awareness of errors in everyday speech.

Teaching Methods-

1. Lesson Introduction-

1. Teacher reviews learner's knowledge of parts of speech with a review quiz game from the QUIA ( or
2. After review of parts of speech, teacher reviews previous day's lesson-Smartboard presentation: "What is a sentence?"
3. Students take out paper (and any notes from previous class) to prepare for note-taking.

2. Lesson Progression-

Teacher goes through Smartboard slides as students take notes on:
1. What is a sentence?
2. What is a subject?
3. What is a predicate?

3. Guided Practice-

1. At page 5 of the presentation, students will practice finding the subject. The students will use the Smartboard to circle the subject in each sentence.
2. At page 6, the students and the teacher will go over a few more examples.
3. At page 7, the students will come have to place complete subjects and predicates into labeled columns.

4. Student Practice-

1. After completing examples/practice, the teacher will give the students time to come up with 5 sentences of their own.
2. When they have completed the sentences, the teacher will choose sentences from a few students to display on the Elmo.
3. The students will be able to evaluate each other's work. They will identify complete subjects and predicates (nouns and verbs).

5. Learner Accommodations-

1. Hard copy of the notes
2. Use of a worksheet to supplement instruction
3. Internet sources for the technologically advanced/tactile learner
4. Use of Smartboard and Elmo

6. Assessment-

1. Each student must create 5 sentences for homework labeling nouns, verbs, subjects, and predicates.

7. Lesson Closure-

Closing Questions:
1. What is a noun?
2. What is a verb?
3. What is a complete sentence?
4. What is a subject and what part of speech is it associated with?
5. What is a predicate and what part of speech is it associated with?
Measuring Student Progress-
