Classroom Procedure

The guide helps you organize the lesson and details when to hand out worksheets. It also lists information in the green box that you might find useful. You will find the lesson objectives, state standards, and number of class sessions the lesson should take to complete in this area. In addition, it describes the supplies you will need as well as what and how you need to prepare beforehand. The supplies you will need for this lesson are pencils, pens, highlighters, and scissors.

Options for Lesson

Included with this lesson is an “Options for Lesson” section that lists a number of suggestions for activities to add to the lesson or substitutions for the ones already in the lesson. For this lesson, you might want to read a farm-themed book before the lesson to correspond with the practice worksheet and homework assignment. This section lists a few books that you could use.

Teacher Notes

The teacher notes page includes a paragraph with additional guidelines and things to think about as you begin to plan your lesson. This page also includes lines that you can use to add your own notes as you’re preparing for this lesson.


Subject and Verb

The Subjects and Verbs: Advanced lesson plan includes two pages of content. The content pages are interactive and students are meant to use them like worksheets. The lesson starts with a few pictures of kids doing different things, like running, swimming, and riding a bike. It tells them to write down what they see next to each picture.

Next, the lesson lists several sentences and asks student to circle who runs, swims, and rides. It also asks them to draw a line under the action. Subjects are who or what is doing the action (usually a noun), while verbs are the action. We always find subjects in front of the verb.

The lesson asks students to find the subject and verb in different sentences by circling the subject and underlining the verb. Finally, students will write three of their own sentences. They will, again, circle the subject and underline the verb. They will finish by drawing pictures of two of their sentences.


The Subjects and Verbs: Advanced lesson plan includes three worksheets: an activity worksheet, a practice worksheet, and a homework assignment. You can refer to the guide on the classroom procedure page to determine when to hand out each worksheet.


For the activity worksheet, students will cut out the words on the worksheet and sort them into verbs or subjects.


The practice worksheet asks students to practice writing sentences. They will use each of the given words in a sentence and will circle the subject and underline the verb in each sentence.


For the homework assignment, students will use the sentences that they wrote on the practice page to write a story about a farm.

Worksheet Answer Keys

This lesson plan includes answer keys for the practice worksheet and the homework assignment, though both simply note that answers will vary. If you choose to administer the lesson pages to your students via PDF, you will need to save a new file that omits these pages. Otherwise, you can simply print out the applicable pages and keep these as reference for yourself when grading assignments.
