When Barry McLean, a student, finished writing this paragraph (which will appear in the text area when you click the "paragraph" button), all the -s and -es endings were where they belonged. Now all the -s and -es endings for plural nouns have been removed. Put them back. Click on each word that requires an ending and rewrite the word correctly in ALL CAPS so it stands out from the other words.

  

    

That same student's next paragraph was written in the past tense. Change the past tense verbs to present tense verbs. Again, write your changes in ALL CAPS so the changed words stand out from the rest of the text.
