Second Grade--Teaching Plural Rules with StoryBuddy or Educreations

After learning 3 plural rules (add s, add es, change y to i and add es) and practicing some examples, I asked the second graders to become teachers and teach the rules themselves. I gave them the choice of using either StoryBuddy (3 pages) or Educreations. In addition to explaining when each rule was used, I asked them to give several examples of words that used that rule.

They paired with another group and used the StoryBuddy or Educreations to teach each other. They enjoyed seeing examples of other groups as well as critiquing how accurate they were in their explanations.
