*Notice quizzes also has the 1:1:1 doubling up rule. Can you remember that from the last shorty lesson? So we have 1 syllable (quiz) + 1 vowel (i) next to 1 end consonant (z) so double up the z There are two vowels but remember because q is always with u so is qu classed as one consonant sound.

Now write some sentences like these
He washes and waxes his car every weekend.
She has three businesses and pays lots of taxes.
He fixes old wooden boxes.
She watches loads of quizzes on TV.

But like all spelling rules there are always exceptions to the rule.
If the -ch ending is pronounced with a "k" sound, you add -s not -es:
stomach - stomachs
epoch - epochs
