1 Countable Nouns vs Uncountable Nouns Worksheet

In this plural nouns worksheet, we test students knowledge on plural nouns. In addition, we assess their knowledge on countable nouns and uncountable nouns.

A plural noun suggests more than one person, place or thing. Plural nouns can be countable or uncountable.

For example, we can specify a count for countable nouns such as 5 carrots. But for uncountable nouns, we can’t assign a number like rice.

2 Common and Proper Nouns Worksheet

In this common and proper nouns worksheet, students have to brainstorm types of proper nouns. Answers should vary among students.

For example, if the common noun is mountain, they have to think of a proper noun like Mount Everest.Notice how the proper noun is capitalized but the common noun isn’t.

This is because common nouns are just general names. But proper names are specific and require the first letter to be capitalized.

3 Singular and Plural Nouns Worksheet

In this singular and plural nouns worksheet, students have to make the plural form from singular nouns.

Instead of our more challenging irregular nouns worksheet, these are regular plural nouns where they end with -s or -es.

For example, the plural of “balloon” is “balloons”. When there’s more than one, in this case they add -s. Simple as that.

4 Collective Nouns Worksheet

In this collective nouns worksheet, students have to fill in the blanks with words at bottom of the page. Enter in the best possible answer for each collective noun.

When you put individual things into groups, the way you describe that collection is a “collective noun”. For example, words like “flock”, “herd” and “swarm” are collective nouns because they are names for a collection of things.

In this collective nouns worksheet, we want you to use only each answer only once. But in colloquial English, we can’t always think of the collective noun.

If you can’t think of a “flock of birds”, you can just say “group of birds”. Because there are hundreds of collective nouns examples, you can try to memorize then all. But don’t worry if you can’t. 🙂

5 Compound Nouns in Pictures

When you put two words together to form another word, you create compound words. In this compound words activity, it’s visual and gets students thinking of how to form compound words.

First, students examine each picture. After they figure out the compound word in the picture, they write it in the box below. After students finish all the compound words, they draw a compound word in the empty box. Finally, their friends guess what it is until they are correct.

A two-word combo in one is a compound word. Overall, they are a lot of fun to learn about the origin of the word. Below the compound words in words worksheet, we have provided answers to each question.

6 Irregular Plural Nouns Worksheet

For regular plural nouns, you can simply take the noun and add -s or -es to make it plural. But for irregular plural nouns, you will have to change the vowel, word, or add a different ending than -s or -es.

For example, “men” is an irregular plural noun for “man”. Because we change the vowel from “a” to “e”, this makes it irregular.

In this irregular plural nouns worksheet, students have to convert each singular noun to plural irregular nouns. Ranging from easy to difficult, feel free to use in your classroom for free.

7 Possessive Nouns Worksheet

Possessive nouns show ownership. For example, “the boy’s ball” shows that the ball belongs to the boy.

Here are 3 simple rules to follow for creating possessive nouns.

  • If you want to show the possessive form of a singular noun, add -‘s. (boy → boy’s)
  • For plural nouns that don’t end in -s, add -‘s. (children → children’s)
  • Finally, for plural nouns that already end with an -s, add ‘. (dogs → dogs’)

In this possessive nouns worksheet, try to follow the 3 rules advice for guidance. Can you create the possessive form?
