Let's start the day with a prayer.
Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou amongst women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

This week we are learning more about adding plural markers -s and -es to nouns. Remember nouns are people, places, things, animals or ideas.
For today's task first review the PowerPoint on what plurals are and the special rules for adding -s or -es. Then complete the activity by changing singular nouns into plural nouns. Choose which level you want to try. The more difficult one you had to write the singular noun on your own.
Challenge: Can you use some your new plural nouns in sentences?

Last week we learned about saying sorry and forgiveness. It is important for us to say sorry and ask for forgiveness when we do something wrong. When someone asks for our forgiveness it is important that we accept their apology so our heart will feel better and we will be happier. It is not nice to stay angry all the time.
For today's task think of ways you can be more like Jesus. How can you follow Jesus' rule of loving one another. Start by going through the learning slides below - pages 21-30.
