About Our Singular/Plural Nouns Worksheets
The third subsection of nouns deals with singular and plural nouns. Browse through the
145 available worksheets
to find something that your students will enjoy. When learning vocabulary, students initially learn the singular form of nouns rather than both the singular and plural forms because this approach makes it easier for them to increase their vocabulary more quickly. Later on, as students start learning verbs and making sentences, they also have to learn the plural forms for all those nouns they learned earlier on.
This simple worksheet for beginners helps students do just that
by asking them to write the plural form of vocabulary words they already know. You can create worksheets just like this one to give your students practice with plurals of other vocabulary words and can even assign a worksheet like this as homework. Check out the rest of the section for more options and feel free to download as many as you want.

GRAMMAR TIP:What Are Singular and Plural Nouns?
In the English language, nouns are inflected for grammatical number that is, singular or plural. The plural morpheme in English is suffixed to the end of most nouns. Regular English plurals fall into three classes, depending upon the sound that ends the singular form: Where a singular noun ends in a sibilant sound /s/, /z/, /ʃ/, /ʒ/, /tʃ/ or /dʒ/ the plural is formed by adding /ɨz/. The spelling adds -es, or -s if the singular already ends in -e: When the singular form ends in a voiceless consonant (other than a sibilant) /p/, /t/, /k/, /f/ or /θ/ the plural is formed by adding /s/. The spelling adds -s. For all other words (i.e. words ending in vowels or voiced non-sibilants) the regular plural adds /z/, represented orthographically by -s.
