St. Rose of Lima School, N. Syracuse, NY
Materials Required: index cards or paper, pencil
Activity Time: 15-20 minutes
Concepts Taught: subject/predicate

Split the class into two groups. Have one group write only a complete subject on its card/paper. The other group writes only a complete predicate only on its card/paper. Then, send them to find a partner of the opposite group. Go around the room and read the complete sentence of each pair. The sentences may sound goofy, but it will be a complete sentence. Kids love it!
