Sažetak:
According to the principles of contemporary methods of teaching a foreign language at an early age, grammar is taught with a gradual introduction of its elements through various activities within English lessons in the junior grades of primary school. In the population of junior grade pupils, nouns of irregular plural are one of the grammatical categories, whose acquisition results in frequent mistakes. The most represented method of teachina a foreign language at an early age is the Total Physical Response Method (or TPR in short). According to the priniciples of this method, the foreign language teachers of children of an early age ought to assist their pupils in achieving several goals: developing listening and speaking skills, including movement in lesson activities and increasing the engagement of the pupils in the same. All the aforementioned goals can, according to the opinion of the majority of developmental psychologists, and ESL methodlolgists, be realised in the category of pluaral nouns is taught in combination with children9 s songs and games, as they are accessible to younger primary school pupils. The aim of this paper is to point towards the importance of the teacher in the proceduralisation phase, i.e. the correction of mistakes that occur due to incorrect plural noun forms, and in particular irregular plural nouns, through songs and games.By combining children' s songs and games that include movement and increased participation of pupils, these topics can be efficiently acquired with only a hint of grammatical metalanguage, as the same is only taught in the later phases of learning the English language.
