Spelling Unit #2 - adding ed and ing

posted Oct 25, 2013, 6:51 AM by Sue Hersey
We are now working with our new list of words for spelling unit #2- learning about adding endings ed and ing. 
  We worked on a word sort with our spelling partners to discover patterns.  By grouping words under a master word we discovered that if a base word ends in silent e, then that e is taken away and then the ending is added.  If a base word ends with a short vowel and consonant, then the consonant is doubled before adding the ending.   We also practiced alphabetizing all the words in the lists.
