This resource is meant for those students beginning to learn the plural rules and covers the first four rules in our Plural Nouns Anchor Charts resource. These rules are adding -s to most nouns, adding –es to words with words ending in ch, sh, x, z, and s, and the two rules when a word ends with y.
There are two different sections for plurals. The first set has words that you need to add -s and -es to create the plural. The second set has words that you need to know the rules for words ending with y to correctly make a plural.
Print on colored cardstock and laminate for durability. Or print on white card and color in with colored pencils before laminating.
