Working with Plural Nouns & FREEBIES!
Hi Friends! It's been a busy week in first grade, but we are finally getting in the groove of everything. This week, we have been working with plural nouns. While our first grade standards don't explicitly state that children must learn suffix -s, -es, and -ies, these plurals are seen in so many of our assessments and first grade text. For that reason,we just jump right into using all three! We started by learning the difference between singular and plural - two GIANT words that can be…
