OK, here, on a sunny Sunday morning, is a lesson plan on collective nouns and subject-verb agreement. I open this lesson with this Everyday Edit worksheet on artist Alexander Calder (and, as always, in the interest of giving credit where credit is due, remember that you can find a year’s worth of Everyday Edit worksheets–for free–at the Education World website). I include this learning support on forming plural nouns with this lesson.
Parenthetically, let me mention that I have tagged this as a Weekly Text. Normally, I only post a Weekly Text on Friday, then cross-post it at the AFT’s Share My Lesson website. Until the COVID19 crisis passes, I’ll be putting up materials I would normally only post as Weekly Texts as, well let’s call them Daily Texts.
If you find typos in these documents, I would appreciate a notification. And, as always, if you find this material useful in your practice, I would be grateful to hear what you think of it. I seek your peer review.
