Plural Subject Verb Agreement Worksheet Two of Seven

Worksheet 2/7 on Subject Verb Agreement

Mini Lesson
Definition The subject of every sentence is either singular or plural and that determines the ending of the verb. Plural nouns usually have an "s" and take plural verbs that usually do not end with an "s".
Example

Boys run. You can't have two "s" endings at the same time. You cannot have an "s" on the subject and an "s" on the verb. Many singular verbs are spelt with a "s" on the end. Many plural verbs do not have a "s" on the end.

Directions Circle the verb in each sentence. Read the sentences aloud to hear the sentence that makes the most sense. The first one has been done for you.

 

1) We (fly / flies) our kite.
2) Students (eats / eat) ice cream.
3) Let's (go / goes) to the library on Saturday.
4) Gary and I (love / loves) our popcorn.
5) The children (take/ takes) seven books and one DVD out of the library.
