Plural nouns songs

Two Cats, Two Hats and One Dog (very short and easy song for just -s endings, from Rockin’ English)

More than One song (for irregular nouns – verses much too difficult, but chorus is simple and funny and could be done on its own)

The Irregular Plurals song (a mix of easy, common ones and very difficult ones and only two illustrated, but quite a nice simple chorus and you could probably make up your own verses)

Plural nouns song (for -s and -es endings, video has someone saying the instructions for actions for the song for some strange reason, but you could skip that part and do the second half where it just has the song, to the tune of Old MacDonald)

The Plural Noun song (similar with the same Old MacDonald tune, but with example words the second time that it is sung – words not too clear on the video, so you’d have to write the lyrics and get your class singing it)

a very short y changes to ies song

Plural song (rather random collection and very fast, but catchy tune – if you wrote the lyrics down without the plurals you could get students to shout out the plurals in time with the song)
