Using simple plurals/plural forms

Why is this important?
Children need to understand and use plurals to be able to identify and describe more than one of something (e.g. duck vs. ducks; house vs. houses). It is fine for children to over-generalise the rule to begin with (e.g.‘fishes’, ‘breads’).

What to do

  • Make a scrapbook together.
  • On one page, put a picture of an object and on the other page, put a picture of several objects (e.g. one dog on one side; lots of dogs on the other page).
  • Either draw, print out, cut out, use stencils, etc. to prepare the pictures.
  • Whilst the child is drawing/sticking, take the opportunity to refer to ‘dog’/‘dogs’.
  • Talk about what you can see in the pictures, encouraging the child to say ‘a dog’/‘lots of dogs’.
