This engaging board game focuses on adding suffixes to words that end in the letter “y”. The spelling rule explains why the letter “y” gets dropped in the word “tried” but not in the word “trying.” It’s a tricky rule to master, but the board game is motivating & FUN. Players on the board move around a cafeteria style restaurant collecting snacks and spelling words.
This resource includes a poster that explains the spelling rule, a word sort activity, and two worksheets with answer keys to reinforce the spelling rule after practicing with the board game. Blank spelling cards and an extra board game are also included for teachers to adapt the game for other classroom content.
