Your Turn Read the rules about subject-verb agreement. Then read the paragraph, which has agreement errors. Write the correct version of any verbs that currently do not agree with their subjects, or print the lesson to mark your corrections.

Subject-Verb Agreement Rules:

  1. A singular subject needs a singular verb: The man sings a song.
  2. A plural subject needs a plural verb: The songs sound beautiful.
  3. Most plural nouns end in s. Most plural verbs do not. Look for one s between the endings of the subject and verb.
