Plural light bulbs

Every week, I receive The Mailbox newsletter. This past week, it included a light bulb pattern. I printed it, copied it, but didn't know what I was going to use it for. Then, inspiration struck. We needed to practice our plural patterns for word study. I assigned each student either -s, -es, or -ies. They had to write the pattern, the rule, then read the room to find 10 examples.

This week, we need to work on irregular plurals. I was looking for a new shape/project for our irregular plurals, then I found the stocking craftivity from "A Cupcake for the Teacher". Perfect!
