Learning Objective

Students will apply spelling rules to form plural nouns. Students will spell irregular plural nouns correctly.


Here's a fun way for your students to practice forming plural nouns. It also makes a creative bulletin board or school hallway display!

Students begin this activity by completing a worksheet with 20 sentences. They read each sentence and then write the plural form of the underlined word. They also write a new sentence that includes the plural form of the word.

Students practice the following spelling rules for forming plural nouns:

1. For most nouns, simply add an -s.

2. If a noun ends in y, change the -y to an -i, and then add -es.

3. If a noun ends in -f, change the -f, to a -v, and then add -es.

4. If a word ends in -x, -sh, -ch, or -ss, add -es.

5. Some nouns (like mouse and child) are irregular. You have to memorize their plural form.

After the worksheet is completed, students color the pieces, and assemble the craftivity!

Student-friendly directions are included so that you can place the directions under your document camera, and students can refer to them as they complete the project. (An answer key is also included.)
