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.
