Plurals of words ending in 'x', 'sh','s', 'ss', and 'ch'.

    Some people describe these as words that "hiss" at the end.
    I'm not sure that 'ch' hisses exactly, but you get the idea.
    All you need to do is add '-es' to make the plurals, like this:
    Singular
    box
    bush
    atlas
    glass
    church

    becomes
    becomes
    becomes
    becomes
    becomes
    Plural
    boxes
    bushes
    atlases
    glasses
    churches

    Now fill in the missing words in the following grid:

    Singular Plural Singular Plural
    sandwich

    guess

    tax

    brush

    crash

    octopus

    beach
