This download contains 4 powerpoints merged into one document that go through a progression for learning the spelling rules for plurals. They are based on word study. The powerpoints are interactive and allow for the class to practice the sort together.
*The first sort focuses on word on adding -s to most words and -es for words ending with sh and ch.
*The second sort builds on the first sort, looking at words that end with s/ss, x, and z/zz.
*The third sort goes into more complex plurals, examining words that end in vowel y, consonsant y, vowel o, and consonant o, and f/fe.
*The fourth sort reviews the patterns from the third sort.
**Note that slides do repeat as the lessons revisit concepts from the week before.
