Title: Building Everlasting Relationships:Practicing Subject-Verb Agreement
Digital Tool: Verb Agreement Treasure Hunt Game
Digital Tool Description: This game allows students to have an opportunity actually practicing making subjects and verbs agree. The added bonus of the treasure hunts makes the process of learning subject-verb agreement exciting. In the game, students are awarded points by getting the verbs to correctly agree with the subjects. There are three levels:
1) Spot the subject of the sentence
2) Choose the right verb form
3) Re-write the sentence with the correct verb.
Once students have answered the question correctly, they will have an opportunity to hunt for treasure. If a student chooses an "X" three times, the game will send them back to the questions. If a student hits a skull and crossbones, regardless of how many times they've hit an X, they will return to the questions.
