Spelling: Unit #4- Change y to i

posted Dec 18, 2012, 10:29 AM by Sue Hersey
We've been learning a new spelling rule this month.  We are studying base words and learning when to change the y to an i then add endings such as es, ed, ing, etc.  Sorting words and studying base words has helped us discover that if a words ends with a consonant and y, then change the y; and when a base word ends with a vowel and y, then the y stays, unless the ending is ing, then the y also stays.  Learning special rules will help us be better spellers.
