Adding "-es" and "-s" to Words

We learned when to add an "es" and when to add an "s" to a word to make it plural. To make the lesson a bit more interesting I had each student take an index card with a word on it. I then placed two paper bags across the room from each other. One of the bags had an "-es" on it and the other an "-s". The students had to look at their word and then put it into the correct bag. This was a fun little activity that got them out of their seats and moving. Once everyone had placed theirs into the bag we took them out one by one to check and see if the card was put into the correct bag. (This took the pressure off of getting the answer wrong and everyone knowing you did.)
