After writing singular and plural nouns on our foldable, we recapped the definition of each, examples, and cut out the magazine photos. I wish I had taken a picture, but I had my students cut out an item, and then label it possessively. For example, if a student cut out a picture of a salad, they would label it “Megan’s salad.”
Next, we did a six tab foldable on six main rules of spelling plural nouns. Here’s an example of the inside of that.
Next, we did something that the kids really enjoyed but I’m sure I’m going to be horrible explaining. I gave them all a blank copy of the 6 tab foldable. They took out a sheet of notebook paper, and traced the 6 tab foldable. Next, they glued the two foldables to their composition book page. To make it a little easier, I had them glue the one I copied first, and the one they traced on top of that, ending up with this.
The top foldable was titled Singular Nouns, the middle foldable Plural Nouns. Finally, they traced the 6 tab one more time onto their composition book. I gave them six singular nouns, which is what you see above. They were given the task of making the singular nouns plural…
Then writing sentences using the plural nouns.
The students really enjoyed doing it like this, and it was more fun than completing it on a worksheet!
