It is important for students to learn the difference between singular and plural nouns and understand how to use both kinds grammatically. This lesson offers activities and games to help you teach your students about nouns.

Different Forms of Nouns

Whether you are interested in improving your students' writing, helping them make better sense of what they read, or making their speaking more complex and grammatical, you might want to teach them about plural and singular nouns. Students should know the difference between a plural and a singular noun. They should understand how irregular plural forms work, and they should know how to use both singular and plural nouns properly in context. This lesson helps you make learning singular and plural nouns engaging and interesting for students by teaching you some activities and games that will help them understand this aspect of grammar.

Games for Plural and Singular Nouns

This section offers fun games that will help students work with plural and singular nouns.

Turn It Plural

Students should play this game with partners. Each partnership should start with a deck of cards. Every card should have a noun on it. The noun might be in written form, or it can also be a picture. Partners take turns drawing cards. One partner flips a card up, and both students should say what the plural form of the noun is. The first student to accurately say the plural form gets to keep that card. The student who has kept the most cards by the end of the game is the winner.
