Moving right along on a damp, post-tropical-storm morning in New York, here is a worksheet on the nouns freshman and freshmen. They are, respectively, singular and plural nouns. This is a full-page worksheet with a three-sentence reading and ten modified cloze exercises.
In the last school in which I served in Lower Manhattan, students frequently used freshmans as the plural (and, interestingly, WordPress’s spell checker doesn’t indicate that “freshmans” is a spelling error) of “freshman.” Students understand the difference in number between man and men, but couldn’t extend or apply that knowledge when the word fresh preceded them. In any event, the reading for this worksheet points out that only freshman—singular–is the adjectival form.
