Grammar Concept:  I can use plural nouns correctly.  I can identify the proper comparative adjective to use in a sentence.  When using plural nouns, remember, most nouns just have an “-s” added, however, some have an “-es” added.  Other rules may apply, like changing a “y” to an “i” before adding the “-es” or “f” to a “v.”  When using comparative adjectives here is a hint:  -er (two letters) is on the end of the adjective when comparing two things.  –est (three letters) is on the end of adjectives when comparing three or more.  Me & my sister—two things.  My sister is taller than me.   Me, my sister, and my brother.  My little brother is the shortest of the kids.
