Singular and Plural Nouns
Today we started to dig in a little deeper to singular and plural nouns. This is such a huge grammar focus because there are so many rules (of which not every word follows... sigh). Add "s" here, and "es" here, but not to this word, "drop the y and add ies" here... oh, and some of them stay the same, while some change completely. There you go kids, you are welcome!
Before digging into ALL those pesky rules, we began by just recognizing that some words are singular and some are plural. I had two charts ready to go, and a stack of sticky notes with a mix of singular and plural nouns. I gave one sticky note to each student, they read it to the class, and stuck it to the correct chart.
