Kinesthetic Lesson on Sentence Diagramming

by Susan Kramer

This lesson plan is for practice in identifying the subject and predicate of a sentence.

Practice exercise

Sentence - "I walk to the door."

"I" is the subject and "walk to the door" is the predicate.

Setting - Classroom where the student has space to move across the room to the door.

To begin, the student stands still at front of room, some distance from the door, and repeats the sentence out loud:

I walk to the door.

On the subject word [I] the student stands still; on the predicate part of the sentence [walk to the door], which in this case has the action verb [walk], the student walks to the door and then stands still, signaling the completion of the sentence.

For further practice, students create their own sentences with a subject and predicate; then come to the front of the room and act them out.
