Description

What our Irregular Plural Nouns lesson plan includes

Lesson Objectives and Overview: Irregular Plural Nouns includes fun activities suitable for the repetitive practice students need to recognize and memorize common irregular plural nouns. This lesson is for students in 2nd grade, and 3rd grade.

Classroom Procedure

Every lesson plan provides you with a classroom procedure page that outlines a step-by-step guide to follow. You do not have to follow the guide exactly. The guide helps you organize the lesson and details when to hand out worksheets. It also lists information in the orange box that you might find useful. You will find the lesson objectives, state standards, and number of class sessions the lesson should take to complete in this area. In addition, it describes the supplies you will need as well as what and how you need to prepare beforehand. The supplies you will need for this lesson are scissors, glue, markers and colored pencils, pictures to cut out and paste for the activity worksheet, a chart of irregular plural nouns, and the handouts. To prepare for this lesson ahead of time, you can gather the supplies, copy the handouts, prepare an empty chart to fill in with your class, and prepare sentences to write on the board for the activity.

Options for Lesson

Included with this lesson is an “Options for Lesson” section that lists a number of suggestions for activities to add to the lesson or substitutions for the ones already in the lesson. For this lesson, the only suggested adjustment is to replace the activity with one where you use the created flash cards for a memory game. You can also decide whether or not you’d like your students to copy the full sentences onto their cards.

Teacher Notes

The teacher notes page includes a paragraph with additional guidelines and things to think about as you begin to plan your lesson. It notes that much of this lesson is repetition, which will help students memorize the irregular plural nouns. This page also includes lines that you can use to add your own notes as you’re preparing for this lesson.

IRREGULAR PLURAL NOUNS LESSON PLAN CONTENT PAGES

Irregular Plural Nouns

The Irregular Plural Nouns lesson plan includes two pages of content. The lesson first states that some plural nouns don’t follow a rule. For example, tooth becomes teeth, but moose doesn’t become meese. Some plural nouns don’t change from their singular form at all, like deer, fish, and sheep. Some, however, change a lot. Mouse becomes mice and person becomes people.

The second page of lesson content includes a chart that shows some common irregular plural nouns alongside their singular version. Some of these examples include foot and feet, man and men, and ox and oxen.

IRREGULAR PLURAL NOUNS LESSON PLAN WORKSHEETS

The Irregular Plural Nouns lesson plan includes three worksheets: an activity worksheet, a practice worksheet, and a homework assignment. You can refer to the guide on the classroom procedure page to determine when to hand out each worksheet.

MAKING FLASH CARDS ACTIVITY WORKSHEET

The activity worksheet asks students to create flashcards. The teacher will write words or sentences on the board and the students will copy them onto the cards. The students may color or decorate their cards, and should include pictures. They will then cut the cards out and write the plural form of the word on the back on each card. The students can then use these cards to practice learning their irregular plural nouns.

IRREGULAR PLURAL NOUNS PRACTICE WORKSHEET

The practice worksheet asks students to first select the correct plural form of various nouns, like deer and mouse. Next, students will fill in the blanks in sentences with the plural form of the given word.

POEM OR SHORT STORY HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENT

For the homework assignment, students will use the space provided to write either a poem or a short story about a noun that has an irregular plural form. They must use at least five additional irregular plural nouns in their poem or story.

Worksheet Answer Keys

This lesson plan includes an answer key for the homework assignment. No answer keys are provided for the activity worksheet or the practice worksheet because students’ responses will vary. If you choose to administer the lesson pages to your students via PDF, you will need to save a new file that omits these pages. Otherwise, you can simply print out the applicable pages and keep these as reference for yourself when grading assignments.

Needs little improvement

The worksheet is very useful. However, there is a picture of a fish next to foot and feet. Moreover, the pictures of deer and moose are swapped.
