Teacher Notes (not visible to students)

1. I like this activity because it shows me who understands the difference between adding s, adding es and adding s to a base word that ends in silent e. It seems so simple, but when you're just learning how to spell and you've only just learned about the silent e rule the year before, there's a LOT of learning that has to take place to see the difference between them all. 2. I always have my kids take their photos with their device first so that it is saved in their camera roll. That way, if there's an issue or a problem, we can always go back and retrieve the photo. Whereas, if the kids use the camera tool, if/when there's a problem or we need to delete the photo for some reason, we have to go through the whole picture-taking process all over again. The less time we spend taking photos, the more time we have to spend on discussing what is IN the photos. :)
