Hello, dear fellow teachers! Teaching grammar is always a challenge for educators especially when working with young learners. One of the first grammar topic they face on this stage is singular and plural nouns. I would like to present you my new set of flashcards featuring singular and plural nouns. This set consists of 132 flashcard pairs of which 66 picture cards feature singular nouns and other 66 picture cards feature plural nouns.


All the flashcards are divided into several groups.You can see some examples of these flashcards below.
