These two worksheets are great for summer review or early school year language arts skills review. Alternatively you can use them for younger children as more advanced English skills instruction. The sentence practice worksheet has a fall / back to school theme, and the pluralizing worksheet has super-cute animals kids will love. Heck, who cares about the kids? I love it! They work well in the traditional classroom as entry tasks or time fillers, but they are also fun worksheets for homeschooling families to use in support of their curriculum.
Age appropriate for 2nd grade, 3rd grade and 4th grade.

These worksheets introduce or reinforce important language arts skills. For example, does your kiddo know when to add an -s versus when to add an -es? Are they familiar with changing the -y to -i and adding -es? What about those pesky nouns that make you change practically everything in order to pluralize the word? (I’m looking at you, mouse-to-mice.) And for the love of everything, let’s teach our kids that you NEVER use an apostrophe to pluralize!
With the sentence worksheet, you can also have them double check their own work:
- Does the sentence start with a capital letter?
- Is there a punctuation mark at the end?
- Are names capitalized?
- Is there a subject and an object of the sentence?
Consider making the worksheet sentences into a story, too, but having each sentence relate to the one above it. It’s likely that they’ll have something different than they expected by the time they get to the end.
If you like the sentence practice worksheet above, you might also want to take a look at the many story starter printables available on Woo!Jr. They’re great for those new to sentence structure but can also support more advanced skills such as paragraphs, organizing information, and so on.
