Reflection: High Expectations Talk About Plural Nouns - Section 3: Follow Up and Expanding


One way to make sure that students will be successful with plural nouns is to plan to focus on the skill for a couple of weeks.  When I do this, I speak and write with plural nouns, I have students do the same and I also have students self-monitor their use of plural nouns. 
For example:  I might have students writing about an animal that we have learned about- I will extend this by telling them I want them to write about a group of their certain animal.  When I do this, I have students check their writing to see if it makes sense and if it relays the message of a plural.  I have students read things back to me but I also have students repeat things they have said- a lot of times, they will correct themselves since they know this has been a focus!
