Fun with Irregular Plural Nouns

It's time to get students up,moving, and collaborating with what may seem like a boring subject to some. Let's explore the fun of irregular plural nouns! Plural nouns that don't follow the traditional plural noun rules are called irregular nouns. They either belong to a set of words that follow a different spelling rule, or have a unique spelling all on their own. For example:

  • some nouns ending in -o take -es at the end, as in heroes
  • some nouns ending in -f take -ves at the end, as in leaves
  • some nouns ending in -is take -es at the end, as in crises
  • some nouns ending in -ix take -ices at the end, as in indices
  • some nouns don't change at all, as in fish and sheep
  • some nouns change their middle vowel sound, as in foot when it changes to feet
