Singular vs. Plural Board Game
ESL Singular and Plural Nouns Game - Reading, Speaking and Spelling Activity - Pre-intermediate - 30 minutes
Here is a singular and plural nouns game to help students practice or revise the two noun forms and their spelling. The students are divided into groups of four (Player 1, 2, 3 and 4) and each group is given a copy of the game board, a set of game cards and counters. The students shuffle the game cards and place them face down in a pile on the board. The game cards are numbered from 1 to 6 and are used instead of a dice. The cards also vary in difficulty, number 1 cards are quite easy and number 6 cards are fairly difficult. The students move forward in the game according to the number on the card by giving the plural form of the singular noun on the card and spelling it correctly. The game begins with player 2 picking up a card from the top of the pile and reading the singular noun on the card to Player 1. Player 1 then tries to give the plural form of the noun and spell it. If player 1 gives the correct plural form and spelling, the student moves the amount of squares indicated on the card. Player 2 then places the card at the bottom of the pile. If player 1 gives the wrong plural form or spells the plural noun incorrectly, the student stays on the same square. Player 3 then picks up a game card from the top of the pile for player 2 and so on. The first player to reach the finish wins the game.
