What is an irregular plural?
An irregular plural is a plural that does not follow the normal rules of English. The normal rule is to append "s", or if a word ends in "s" or "sh", then append "es".
Many irregular plurals are animals or fish, such as "sheep", "deer", "moose", "salmon", "tuna", etc. Words ending in "f" or "o" are often, but not always, irregular.
• 10 plural words (10 irregular, 10 regular), with a sentence for each word

How to use this app
In Level One, the sentence is spoken by the app when the frame appears, so the student can hear the correct plural. The student then slides the correct word into the sentence.
In Level Two, there is no audio clue to the correct answer, and the sentences have a mixture of both regular and irregular plurals.
In the Advanced Level, the student is presented with each noun and must select the correct plural. The student must also correctly identify the plural as either regular or irregular.
This app allows each student to work at their own level. It is ideal for self paced learning or home schooling.

Ratings and Reviews
Needs some work!
Some of the options include to show the picture, to read the sentence, to use an award system, do not work!!! When I asked for the pic to show it didn't. When I asked for the sentence not to be read, it read it. When I asked for there to be no reward system, there was one. I hope you are able to fix all the bugs in this app. I would love to change my review.
I just checked and some of the older apps I first purchased from you don't work either. They get stuck or just turn off. Don't sell apps if you're not going to do the up keep.
This app is okay, but it's inaccurate regarding some irregular plurals. It identifies plurals for words that end in y and change to ies as irregular, but the regular rule is that if it ends in y, you change the y to i and add es.
Speech Therapist- narrator doesn't pronounce words with appropriate long vowel vs short vowel, i.e. says " hats" for both 'hates' and 'hats'.
