This packet will put a spring in your step as your small friends master the trick of making plurals!
It contains the essential pieces- whether you are teaching the concept for the first time, or reviewing for the end of the year standards mastery.
2nd grade Common Core Standard:
Form and use frequently occurring irregular plural nouns
3rd grade Common Core Standard:

WHAT YOU WILL RECEIVE:
Grow Lists for:
Plain Old S – most nouns just need an “s” to create the plural form.
The Famous 5 (_s, _x, _ch, _sh, and _z are base word endings that require _es) There are separate pages for each ending as well as a page for “sometimes o”
"y" to "i" Think “candy” to “candies”
"f" to "v" Think “wolf” to “wolves”
Irregular nouns Think “foot to feet”
Grow Lists are an effective research based tool that helps students organize their learning, both on the written page as well as in their brains. You will love how often the lists will allow you to revisit the many different sorts of plurals with a minimum output of time or advance lesson planning. Best of all, kids really enjoy them! Included are detailed directions/suggestions/reflections on how to get started and keep going.
Also included is a list of words that pertain to each category. This is REALLY helpful when you're in front of the kids and trying desperately to think of another noun they will know that changes from "f" to "v" etc.! TRY these! They are like no regular worksheet! I have found them to be effective with struggling students as well as those who are quick to catch on.
4 different worksheets that give practice in forming plurals from the singular form. They also have embedded in them cloze sentence work to improve students’ ability to use contextual clues.
A game that is sure to get attention: “Pick a Peck of Plurals”! This is a perfect center activity. It gives the opportunity to recognize the correct spelling choice for all the varieties of plurals in a multiple choice format (test prep!) And there is the added opportunity to practice writing the word CORRECTLY- no chance of creating any bad habits. Best of all, kids love it!
A pre/posttest is included as a simple assessment tool that will give you the quick feedback you need to gauge the progress of your young friends.
