I used this Recipe for a Sentence anchor chart to introduce my 2nd graders to the concept of subject and predicate. To make it a little more “kid-friendly,” we called the subject the naming part of the sentence. It names who or what the sentence is about. The predicate is the telling part of the sentence. It tells what happens. Since we they also know about capitalization and punctuation, I included those, too. The idea was to tie subject and predicate in with what they already knew about complete sentences.
