What are irregular plural nouns?

A singular noun tells about one of something. A plural noun is a noun that represents more than one.

Most nouns in the English language follow certain rules.

When you have a singular noun and you are trying to write it as a plural, you often add an s or es. There are steps for you to follow when you are making the change.

Irregular plural nouns are nouns that don’t follow the rules!

There aren’t really ways to learn how to make these singular nouns plural, students need to memorize the words that fall into this category.

The list I have created contains many common irregular plural nouns. These are the words you will most commonly use in the classroom when talking about this topic.

If there are others your class is discussing, you might create your own anchor chart to display in your room.
