Concept Development
Today we will be working with words
that end with a y to write them in their
plural form.
Ex. lady
boy
daisy
There will be two types of plural
forms. Some will be regular plurals and
others will be irregular plurals.
A regular plural is a word that you add
an “s” to at the end.
When words end in a vowel and a y,
we add “s” at the end to make it
plural.
Ex. t oy +
s =
toys
Non - examples
book
+
s
=
books
car
+
s
=
cars
Checking for Understanding
TPS – Why did I just add an s to tray to make it
plural?
tray
+
s
=
trays
Irregular plurals are words that are not
typical, usual, or common because they
change spelling when talking about more
than one.
When words end in a consonant and a y
we drop the y and add “ies” to make
the word plural.
Ex. strawber ry/ + ies = strawberries
Non - examples
book
+
s
=
books
car
+
s
=
cars
Checking for Understanding
TPS – Why did I cross out the y and add “ies”
to make it plural?
puppy
+
ies
=
puppies
