Singular and Plural Nouns Foldable {FREEBIE}

Helping kids understand when singular base words stay the same and change when becoming plural is a part of the journey of 1st, 2nd and 3rd grades.  Giving them tools they can refer to can definitely assist them, and foldables glued in notebooks can do just that.

Here's another one that I use.  (See this post, this one, and this one for more ideas and some background on how to use them.)  For this one, I usually model a couple of singular base words in each category along with their accompanying modified plural words.  Then I ask my brilliant word nerds to offer suggestions and we add them.  Finally, I tell them to hunt for words in their reading that they can add to their foldable.  (If they run out of room on their notebook paper, they write on the back of the flaps.)

I've included a black and white version which you can print on white or colored paper as well as one that has some color on it.  Use this colored one however your little fancy pants heart desires.

Glue on the back under the words Singular, Plural and Nouns.  Cut flaps for all other words.

If you like the fonts I used, get them for FREE at Rowdy in Room 300.  Love them!

Have a blessed week and enjoy!
