Plural Endings: -ES

Plural Endings: -ES

Challenge your child to pluralize nouns on spelling lists.
The Sparkle Game is a fun, engaging way for students to practice spelling. Have students stand in a circle; tell them the singular form of a noun and ask them to spell the plural form. Then, select one student to start a word by saying only the first letter. Moving clockwise, each student will say the next letter of the word to create its plural form. Anyone who says the wrong letter must sit down. The last student standing is the winner!
