Handwriting and spelling

Spelling rule s and es.

 

When forming a plural we can add the suffix s and es. 

A plural means that there is more than one. 

Example.... one cat (singular) lots of cats (plural)

 

Rules

For most words we just add ‘s’ to the end of it to change it into a plural.

Examples

cats

dogs

hats

shoes

bins

cars

 

If the word ends with one of these sounds…

ch   sh  ss  s x  z

then add es.

 

 

Example

box  - boxes

witch - witches

glass - glasses

church - churches

 

 

Apply the words with suffixes into a sentence. Can you think of any more words that have the s or es ending?
