This is a card game to review how to make plurals. Ss play in small groups (4-6). Before starting the game, print 1 copy of all the pages per group, laminate them and cut them out.

Shuffle the picture cards and deal five cards out to each player. The object of this game is to get rid of all of your cards by collecting singular and plural pairs. The first player starts by either:
- placing down a singular/plural pair saying, for example, “I have got a child and three children”.
- or asking another player for a matching card. For example, if they have the card with a watch, they should ask to any player they choose: “Have you got watches?” If the student asked does not have the card needed, he/she should say: “No, I haven’t. Go fish.” And the first player pick up a card from the draw pile (the sea).

Players continue asking others for cards and drawing from the pile. When they have successfully collected a singular and plural match, they place it down on the table.

The first player to make singular/plural pairs out of all their cards is the winner.

Another option would be that play continues until all the cards have been collected in pairs. The player with the most pairs is the winner.

The above downloadable worksheet is best suited for elementary school students, kindergartners and nursery school students and students with special educational needs, learning difficulties, e.g. dyslexia at Beginner (pre-A1) and Elementary (A1) level. It is a useful material for consolidating Plural nouns: irregular plurals and Plural nouns: regular plurals with S ending in English, and can be used for honing your pupils' Listening, Speaking and Reading skills.
