Singular or Plural

Read the singular word and change it to the plural using s, es, ies.

 

Here is a reminder of the rules.

 

To make nouns plural, add ‑s to the end.

 

If the noun ends in ‑s, -ss, -sh, -ch, -x, or -z, add ‑es to the end to make it plural. 

 

If a word ends in y with a consonant before it (fly), you drop the y and add -ies to make it plural.

 

If the y has a vowel before it (boys), then you just add the s.
