Plural Nouns Worksheet

Nouns that name one person, place or thing are known as 'singular' nouns.  Nouns that name more than one are called 'plural.'  They usually end in -s.
    Example:  I ate one apple.
                    She ate two apples.

An -es must be added to nouns which end in -ch, -sh, -s, or -x.
    Example:  I need two more boxes.
 

Make the following singular nouns into plural ones.

wish
bench
football
bus
dragon
fox
crate
boxcar
motorcycle
dish
kiss

To change a singular noun which ends in -y into a plural noun, you must drop the -y and add -ies.
    Example:  One butterfly is pretty.
                    Many butterflies are even more so.

EXCEPT:  if a singular noun ends in a vowel and -y, you need to only add -s.
    Example:  There is only one boy in the room.
                    All the other boys are in the hallway.

Change the following singular nouns into plural ones.
 

toy
day
country
family
county
fly
baby
story
bay
fairy
 

Some singular nouns form whole new words when they become plural.
    Example:  One woman is waiting in that line.
                    Several women are in the other line.
 

Draw a line to connect the singular noun with its plural form.
