Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!!! Print this page off and let your class (or Thanksgiving dinner guests) Brainstorm something (noun) they’re thankful for. Maybe give them a few minutes to see how many they can letters they can write something down for (1 word per line/letter). Then share your answers.

Since it’s “thankful season,” let me first thank my family (especially my hubby) and friends for all their support as I’ve been building this blog. A HUGE thank you also goes out to those of you who have spread the word about my blog! I truly appreciate my readers and those teachers around the world who help the rising generation achieve their full potential.
Here’s my free printable Plural Nouns- Thanksgiving UPDATED worksheet! It asks students to change singular nouns to plural by adding -s. There are no irregulars on this worksheet, so this is a great page for second grade (maybe with teacher help reading the words) or third grade. This would also be helpful for ESL or ELL students who need some extra practice with plurals. Happy Turkey Day!
