These worksheets will teach your students how to identify and use subjects and predicates correctly.

Sentences are divided into two parts: the subject, which is who or what the sentence is about, and the predicate, which is everything else (verbs, adjectives, prepositional phrases, etc.). This collection of activity sheets uses short sentences and word prompts to help your students learn about the differences between subjects and predicates. Answer sheets have been provided for worksheets for instructors, but please note that in some cases, your students' answers will vary.

A really quick way to remember this is if it is about the "who" or "what" you are referring to the subject. If it i something telling about the subject (who or what) it is the predicate.
