Plural Nouns

Plural Nouns

Author: Mrs. T Tomassi

I can explain the difference between a singular and plural noun.

I can identify the different spelling patterns that are used to change a word from singular to plural.  ( The plural -s, nouns that are singular and plural, nouns that are always plural, changing -y to -ies, using -es).

I can use these spelling patterns when writing singular or plural nouns.


You will have a website to real and watch 5 tutorial videos by Mrs. Thorne Does Phonics.  After, please answer the questions in the Google Document provided at the end.


Once you copy the worksheet, rename it and fill in your answers, you will need to share it with me!

Sometimes when you are spelling a plural noun, you will need to drop the 'y' on the singular noun and change it to an -ies.

Plural nouns that end is "-es".

There are times words need more than just an 's' to become plural. Do you notice any patterns for these words?

There are some nouns that always are plural. You always mean more than one...because there is no singular version of the noun. See if any surprize you?
