Procedure TEACHER’S ACTIVITY STUDENT’S ACTIVITYA. Preparatory Activity Prayer Class, let us all stand and put (Student’s will pray) ourselves in the presence of the Lord as we pray.

  2. 2. B. Review of the Past Lesson We have already finished discussing about The two basic parts of the sentence are the subject Reference of Pronouns. Before we move and predicate. on to the next topic, let us have a recall of what are the basic parts of a sentence. The subject may be a noun or pronoun; the predicate may be an adjective but most of the time it is a verb. How are the subject and predicate related The subject is the one being talked about while the to each other? predicate tells the action of the subject or action given to the subject. Correct. The reason why I asked you about the subject and the verb is that our topic for today is all about the Subject – Verb Agreement and the rules that govern it. There are seven rules which govern Subject – Verb Agreement. I will tell you each of the rules and give an example. Afterwards, you will give your own example.C. Motivation Before anything else, I would like you to (The students will write their answers on a half write ten verbs. pad paper for two minutes) Very good! Now, we will discuss all those verbs as we move on with the lesson.D. Presentation Remember class that verbs, unlike nouns, have the S-form of the word for the singular form and the base form for its plural form. Please take a look at the example. Example: S-form(singular): Sings, dances, writes, eats
  3. 3. Base Form(plural)Sing, dance, write, eatGive some more examples. S-form(singular) Notices, smells, looks, repeats Base Form(plural) Notice, smell, look, repeatVery good. Now we will move on with thelesson regarding the rules on the Subject –Verb Agreement.1. Singular subjects take singular verbs. Plural subjects take plural verbs. Example: Envy is ignorance; imitation is suicide. (singular) We recognize our own rejected thoughts. (plural) Now, give me your own example. Miley Cyrus attends the Academy Awards. (singular) Percy and Annabeth are one of the characters of The Lightning Thief. (plural)2. The verb agrees only with its subject. Words between subject and verb do not affect the number of the subject. (intervening phrase) Example: The luster of the firmament of bards and sages dazzles people. Notice that although the intervening words are in plural form, both the
  4. 4. subject and the verb are in singular form. Now, give your own example. One of the obstacles of self-reliance is conformity.3. The words some, all, most, any are singular when they refer to quantity or a collection taken as one. On the other hand, they are plural when they refer to a number or a collection taken as several items. Example: Most of the work was begun by original thinkers. (quantity) Some of the ideas exposed by Emerson were misunderstood. (number) Now, give your own example. All of the dish was done by my Logan. Any of the students are allowed to participate. (number)4. A compound subject joined by and takes a plural verb. When they referred to as one unit, it takes singular verb. Example: Conformity and consistency are two obstacles of self-reliance. (separate units) The writer and the lecturer of great renown was a speaker at Harvard. (one unit) Now, give your own example. The actress and the model are going to have a
  5. 5. movie together. (separate units) Peanut butter and jelly is her favorite. (as one unit) Very good class! Before we continue our discussion with the three remaining rules, let us first have some fun.E. Application: Choose the correct form of the verb. 1. Jon, along with the other students, Jon, along with the other students thinks of (think, thinks) of pursuing a science pursuing a science career. career. 2. There (is, are) a good chance of There is a good chance of thunderstorms in metro thunderstorms in Metro Manila today. Manila. 3. Hannah is one of the office workers Hannah is one of the office workers who still who still (attend, attends) classes. attends classes.F. Generalization Singular subjects take singular verb; plural subjects take plural verb. The verb agrees only to its subject. Intervening words do not affect the number of the subject. Some, all, most, and any are singular when they refer to a quantity. They are plural when they refer to a number. A compound subject joined by and takes plural verb. When the compound subject refers to one unit, it takes singular verb.
  6. 6. IV. Evaluation If the sentence is grammatically correct, write C before the number. If there is an error in subject-verb agreement, write the correct form of the verb. 1. The date and the place of the Girl Scouts’ Jamboree has been set. 2. The photographs in the yearbook are her work. 3. One of todays’s English lessons are not easy to comprehend. 4.
