Plural

  • A plural word is where we have more than 1 thing.

    • Singular = 1

    • Plural = More than 1


Watch Out – Rules!

  • There are lots of rules when changing words from singular to plural.

  • BE CAREFUL!

  • We are going to look at just two of the rules.

  • LISTENING?


Adding ‘s’

  • For most words we just add ‘s’ to the end of it to change it into a plural.

  • one applethree apples

  • desk →desksmonth →months

  • book → bookstrain →trains

  • pen → pensname →names


Adding ‘es’

  • For others we need to add ‘es’ to change it to a plural.

  • one brushtwo brushes

  • box →boxesdish →dishes

  • glass → glassesquiz →quizes


Rule!

  • If the word ends with a long s sound or a hiss sound like;

    • sh

    • ch

    • ss

      • then add ‘es’

  • - s

  • - x

  • - z
