A match is one card that has the singular word and one card that has the plural word. Players take turns flipping cards over to try and make a match. The first player flips 2 cards over. If it is not a singular/plural match, flip the cards back over and the next player takes a turn. If it is a match, that player keeps the pair and all players record the pair on the recording sheet. That player gets another turn until a match has not been made. Whoever has the most matches at the end is the WINNER!
