Linking Verbs

This week in grammar, students were introduced to the concept of linking verbs. To learn the most common linking verbs, our students memorized a song! Then, to help distinguish between linking verbs and action verbs, our students partipated in the “Wheel of Verbs” activity.

Singular and Plural Nouns Posters

As you know, our fifth graders recently learned the rules for making various singular nouns plural. To expand their understanding, the students worked in small groups to identify and catergorize singular and plural nouns in non-fiction texts, such as newspaper and magazine articles. They then used their Nouns Foldable to identify the rule that applied to each plural noun found in their text. Below are some examples of the completed poster!
