Step 1 . Look around and name anything you see nearby or in the class .
Step 2. Let’s say something about the object you identified .
You may ask the children to say something about the same subject . There will be different things and different sentences formed . For example : object identified was – table – Sentence 1 – Table is made of wood . 2 – Table is heavy . 3 Table is broken at the corner .
Step 3 . A few more examples will be taken up before giving the explanation about the subject and the predicate .
Every sentence has a complete subject and a comple predicate .
Suject is what or who we are talking about in a sentence .
Predicate is what is being said about the subject .
Pin sentence no 1 , 2 and, 3 subject is table and what is being said about it is the predicate .
Subject :- subject is either a noun or a pronoun . It may come in the beginning ,middle or end of the sentence .
1 . A cold wind blew in the evening .
2 . Caught in crossfire , the car blew into flames .
3 . The carpenter repaired the table .
4 . She is never late for office .
5 It is not your fault .
Predicate :- What is being said about the subject constitutes the predicate . It contains the verb + object . Object is what receives the action done by the subject . In sentence no 3 carpenter is the subject , repaired is verb and table which received the action of being repaired is its object .
Step 4 . Give some oral drill asking to supply subject and predicate and identify the same in given sentences to be followed by written exercises .
