Kids will change plural nouns that end in IES to Y, and nouns that end in VES to an F or FE.
Plural Nouns Ending in O Worksheet
Students will be asked to add an S or ES to singular nouns that end in O to make them plural.
The majority of the time, to make a noun plural that ends in O:
- if the letter before the O is a consonant, add ES
- if the letter before the O is a vowel, add S
The English language is full of exceptions tho. Shortened words only need an S.
For example, the word photo. Even tho the letter before the O is a consonant, photos only has an S to make it plural.

Music type words are another exception. Words like piano, cello, banjo, alto or solo only need an S to form its plural.
