Suggestions of approaches for the teacher

(Suggestion 1) The game can be proposed individually or in pairs. Children should be encouraged to read the word that appears just above the drawing. If you prefer, activate the 'caps lock' key on the keyboard so that children use capital letters when writing plural words. In pairs, children should take turns typing the words. Sometimes one member, sometimes the other, but both should read and exchange ideas about the correct form of the plural.

(Suggestion 2) Decorate shoe boxes and instruct students to place different objects inside the box. When removing each object from the box, ask him to write the singular and plural of the word in the notebook. Example: Car = cars. Purse = Purses. Card. Cards.

(Suggestion 3) Memory game.

(Suggestion 4) Hangman game.

(Suggestion 5) Word game: write dozens of words on the board, all scrambled. Ask students to make two boxes in their notebooks. On one side they should write the plural words and on the other side the singular words.

(Suggestion 6) Use crosswords.

(Suggestion 7) Use word searches, where the student should color only the words in singular or plural.

(Suggestion 8) Work with texts, identifying words in the plural (emphasis or circular).

More about the content

To complement this study, it is important to emphasize that the plural varies according to the word. Many children, at first, believe that writing in the plural is just adding the S at the end of words.
