Irregular plural nouns are nouns that do not become plurals by the addition of ‘s’ or ‘es’ as most English words do. There are other words whose plurals are formed in different ways, either by changing ‘fe; to ‘ves’ as in wife——— wives, life-lives etc, or by changing

the entire spelling as in mouse————-mice, child———- children, or by changing the

vowel like   goose—————-geese, tooth———— teeth etc.

One thing to note is that, children just have to memorise the plurals of irregular nouns. The more they practice it, the more they know.

For this class who are not more into writing, we will look at the irregular nouns that have different pronunciations like———-man- men, tooth——-teeth——–, foot——-

feet, child——–children, woman———women, goose=======geese, mouse—– mice,



  • PROMPTING: Nouns and their plural


( Its good not to use similar prompting so as not to confuse the children. In regular nouns, we used singular and plurals, here, we have to use nouns and their plurals so as to clearly differentiate the two for the kids)


  • RESPONSE: Nouns and their plurals

Man               men

Child             children

Woman        women

Tooth            teeth

Foot               feet

Mouse           mice

Goose            geese
