¡Hola! Thanks for using our resources to learn Spanish. This time, we have designed a nice and interesting worksheet on the gender (masculine/feminine) and grammatical number (singular/plural) of Spanish nouns. We hope you find it very useful to practice this very essential topic. Let’s start…
Students could work by themselves or in pairs to solve the exercises on this worksheet.
First of all, this worksheet shows a brief explanation on how to recognize plural nouns and their gender by looking at their ending. The rules have been explained in two grammar lessons related to this topic (see below). For the first exercise, students will see three empty boxes below each picture. They must choose or write the name of the “sustantivo” in the large box and their number and gender in the small ones, just the way it is shown in the example. For the second exercise, they must read the fable and underline all Spanish nouns and write their gender and number too with the letters M (masculine), F (feminine), S (singular) and P (plural).

Extra in-class activity:
The teacher makes a list of Spanish nouns that students may be familiar with and brings flashcards about these words to the classroom. Then, he/she makes two lines of students and shows one picture at a time. The students in front of each line should pronounce the word correctly and say its number and gender (singular, plural, masculino, femenino). Only the students in front can say the answer so that every student has the chance without others helping him/her. The group that pronounces and uses the rules for Spanish nouns gender and number correctly wins.
