At around 24-30 months of age, typically developing children learn to add an “s” to the ends of nouns to denote plurals, e.g. as in cats, tables, and trees. We call these words regular plurals. Many people learning English as a second language and people with language disorders need help to learn the pattern.
This 25-page pack is designed to give people lots of focused practice distinguishing singular and regular plural nouns using 36, easy-to-depict, basic nouns taken from Odgen’s Basic English core vocabulary of 850 high frequency words.
To help promote transfer to every day activities, we’ve also included a short “eye spy” activity which you can tailor to encourage more practice using regular nouns to describe the world immediately around the student.
The basic singular and regular plural nouns are also included as cards at the end of the pack which you can laminate and cut up for sorting games.
