Product Description
Simple activity to help young learners understand the meaning of "plural" as well as introduce the basic spelling rule of adding /s/.

You can introduce this activity with a fun and memorable song:
(To the tune of London Bridges)
"Plural just means more than one, more than one, more than one,
Plural just means more than one. More than one, you see."

-Teacher should select 2 words that would be simple "add an -s" plurals.
(example: dog-->dogs, hat--->hats, pen--->pens)
-Students write the singular word in the first boxes and sketch the meaning.
-In the second box, students should write the plural word and sketch the meaning.
(ie. in the first box they sketch 1 dog, but in the second box they sketch 2 or 3 dogs).

*This activity can be differentiated for more complex spelling patterns for advanced learners. Teachers should simply select the words they feel best meets the spellers needs.
