Let Goopaw help you practice making basic nouns plural!

Transcript Make It Plural: 'S' or 'ES'— Let's Practice!

Goopaw says let's start practicing how to "Make It Plural: S or ES." Plural means there is more than one of something. When we read, write, or speak, we can hear this when we add S to the end of the word. Here is an example. One dog becomes many dogs. Sometimes, if the word ends in s, x, ch, or sh, we add an ES to the end instead of an s. Here is an example. One wish becomes many wishes. Now it's your turn! Try this word. How do you say more than one cup? Cups! You add an S to the end. Here is the next word. How do you say more than one bus? Buses! You add an ES to the end because the last letter in bus is an S. Here is another word. How do you say more than one web? Webs! You add an S to the end. Here is one more word. How do you say more than one car? Cars! You add an S to the end. Here is the last word. How do you say more than one fox? Foxes! You add an ES because the last letter in fox is an X. Goopaw had so much fun practicing with you today! See you next time!
