“I’m going to visit my grandmother and I’m taking a/an _______”.

• The single item chosen must start with the letter “a”.

• The third student must repeat the first two items and add an item starting with the letter “c”, and so forth.

letters “a” to “z” using the appropriate article.
• This game can also be played in the past tense. For example:
“ I went to visit my grandmother and I took a/an__________”
• It is also possible to replace “grandmother” by another person or even a place.
For example: “I’m going to school and I’m taking a lunch.”

ILLUSTRATION


Focus 1

INTERACTIVE GRAMMAR

“a” and “an”
a and an are indefinite articles.
We use an before a word beginning with a vowel (a,e,i,o,u)
Example
an apple

I see an airplane in the sky.

We use a before a word beginning with a consonant.
Example
a dog

I have a pebble in my shoe.

Plural Soup
• Plurals of regular and common
irregular nouns
• Classroom objects, animals
and body parts

Material
Classroom set-up

• Picture cards (Reproducible 1)
• Focus 2-A and 2-B
• Groups of 2 to 4 students

Setting the scene
tion
situa

• Review vocabulary related to classroom objects, animals and body parts.
• Tell the students that they are going to play a card game in which they will identify different classroom
objects, body parts and animals. They will also have to use the correct plural form of the vocabulary in
English.
• Form groups of two to four students.

Procedure

• Distribute a set of picture cards to each group of students.
• Students place the picture cards face down in a pile.
• Taking turns, each student draws a picture card from the pile and, speaking aloud, identifies the object on
the card along with the quantity, e.g.: one dog, two books, etc..
• If the student correctly identifies the picture and quantity and pronounces the plural form to the satisfaction of the rest of the team, that student may keep the card. If the student is unable to correctly identify
the picture or does not pronounce the plural form correctly, that card is passed to the next student.
• The teacher should model the pronunciation of the plural “s” by exaggerating, e.g.: “Two bookssssss.”
Students should also be encouraged to exaggerate the pronunciation.
• This continues until all the cards in the pile have been correctly identified. The student with the most
cards wins.

plural “s”.
• For more advanced practice, students can write their answers on a piece of paper in addition to saying
them aloud.
• Students can make their own picture cards.
• The activity can also be done with different themes, e.g.: food, sports articles, vehicles, clothing, things
related to different special occasions (Christmas, Halloween, etc.).

Focus 2-A

INTERACTIVE GRAMMAR

Plural s
When we put a noun in the plural form in English we add an s.
Example
one dog - two dogs
one cat - two cats

Two heads are
better than one!

Seven smiling snakes.

Plural es
For words that end in the letters s, x , sh or ch, we add es.
Example
one bus - two
one box - two
one brush - two
one church - two

buses
boxes
brushes
churches

The cats are in the boxes.


Focus 2-B

INTERACTIVE GRAMMAR

Plural - Irregular Nouns
Some nouns are irregular.
We must learn the irregular plural forms of these words.
Example
one child - two children
one man - two men
one woman - two women
one foot - two feet
one tooth - two teeth
one mouse - two mice

The children have big feet.

The mice have big teeth.
