Mark's Note: I present the plural sets 4-6 months after they have covered several sets of nouns. I show them the card with 'a bear' and then the card with 'bears.' I usually try to let them see what is different about the cards and why. Somebody will get it. Afterwards, I cover the difference between 'What's this?' and 'What are these?' still using the two different flashcard sets, mixing singular with plural. Once the students understand, I continue focusing only on the plural form.

Irregular plurals are left in place. I deal with them as they come up. There is only one in the first set (fish.)
