|A noun that stands for one person, place, or thing is singular.|
Example: Molly sharpened her pencil.
A noun that stands for more than one person, place or thing is plural.
For most singular nouns, their plural is obtained by adding -s to the end. If the singular noun already ends in s, ss, x, ch, or sh, its plural is obtained by adding -es to the end. If the singular noun ends in y, change the y to i and add -es to obtain its plural.
There are some nouns that do not follow the rules for most plural nouns. They have irregular plural forms. Since these plural nouns do not follow regular patterns, you just have to memorize them.
For some nouns, the singular and plural forms are the same.
Directions: Write the plural noun for the singular noun in each question. Use the nouns in sentences. Write five more examples each for nouns that have regular plurals, nouns that have irregular plurals, and nouns that have the identical singular & plural forms.
