Pronoun-Verb Agreement - 6th Grade Grammar

Pronoun-Verb Agreement

Subject pronouns and verbs must agree. 
        I am tired. 
        She is sleepy. 
        She and I are exhausted.

Add -s to regular present-tense verbs when you use the singular pronouns he, she, and it. 
        She walks her dog every morning. 
        He sleds down the hill. 
        Jack thinks it looks like a good day for kickball.
        He says he will organize a game.
        She kicks the ball harder than the other players do.

Do not add -s to regular present-tense verbs when you use the pronouns I, we, you, and they. 
        I visit my grandmother every Sunday. 
        We swim in Lake Hopatcong. 
        We play on the corner near Claire’s house.
        I want to be on Claire’s team.
        You need to join our team! to play.

An indefinite pronoun does not refer to a specific person, place, or thing. 

Some indefinite pronouns are singular, such as anyone and everyone
        Anyone in the neighborhood knows where Claire lives.
        Today, everyone agrees to play after lunch.
Others are plural, such as both and several
        Two teams will play; both hope to win.
Some can be plural or singular, such as all and some.

        All of the players feel eady to play.
        Some of the baseball players are happy as spring is here.

Subject Pronoun-Verb Contractions

A contraction is a shortened form of two words in which the missing letters are replaced by an apostrophe. 
        They are leaving tomorrow. 
        They’re leaving tomorrow. 

Subject pronouns can be combined with some verbs to form contractions.

I am I’m
we are we’re
he is he’s
they are they’re
it is it’s
you will you’ll
I have I’ve
she has she’s
they have they’ve
we will we’ll
