Spelling: Unit #2 Rule

posted Oct 29, 2012, 11:18 AM by Sue Hersey
This month for our unit #2 spelling list we're learning about the rule for adding the endings, ed or ing to base words.  By sorting lists of words, we discovered that if the base word ends with a silent e, the silent e is dropped to add ed or ing.  We also discovered that if the base word ends with a short vowel and a consonant, the last consonant is doubled before adding ed, or ing.  Remembering this rule will help us spell more difficult words in the future.
