Learn that when a word ends in a consonant and the letter "y," the "y" is dropped and "ies" or "ied" are added.
Scroll down to "Making a word plural that ends in y with a consonant before it." Read the section to your child and work through the examples together using paper and pencil.

Work through these examples on paper: try (tried), cry (cried), spy (spied).
