This game focuses on formation of plural nouns with four main sections. There is a plural nouns vocabulary practice section and a plural nouns spelling section. Then, there are some games for conversation practice and games for listening practice. The question and answer activities are associated with the ESL Young Learners Curriculum - Unit 7.
The questions and answers for this game are as follows.
A: What's this?
B: It's a bear.
A: Is this a panda?
B: Yes, it is./No, it's not.
A: What are these?
B: They're bears.
A: Are these pandas?
B: Yes, they are./No, they're not.
This stresses the difference between singular and plural forms. There is heavy emphasis on use of the article "a" for non-definitive countable nouns.
All of the plural forms in this activity are regular form nouns that simply take the -s suffix and do not require special spelling rules for affixing the suffix. For irregular spelling and irregular plural nouns, try the plural nouns 2 and 3 on this site.
This activity doesn't require students to use the quantifier "some" prior to plural forms, but in the write in sections it will accept "some" before the plural forms.
The spelling section will accept singular nouns with or without the article "a"
