plural "y" endings update

I added this part of my newest unit as an after thought. 
I had a student prove me wrong today! 
(Don't you love it when that happens? I know my students do!)
Sometimes “y” isn’t replaced with “-ies”... 

For Example
monkey --> monkeys
day --> days
toy --> toys

The rule about “-ies” only applies when it is a consonant before the “y”. If there is a vowel before the “y” then you add the “s” as normal. That is why I made some allergy medicine. The allergy medicine helps “y” so he can be around “s”. I am excited to show this new addition to my students!


If you have already purchased this unit, go ahead and re-download it!

ENjOY!
