Adding -er and -est endings
This no prep activity pack is designed to help students become confident adding comparative and superlative endings.
This file includes:
★ A poster explaining the –er ending.
★ A poster explaining the –est ending.
★ A poster with the rule for doubling the final consonant (CVC and CCVC words).
★ A poster with the rule for dropping the final e.
★ A poster with the rule for changing y to i before adding –er or –est.
★ Complete the Chart and Read, Roll and Write activities.
Complete the Chart
: Students fill in a series of charts to practice forming comparative and superlative adjectives. The first page is composed of words for which students simply add the ending. The second page focuses on words in which the silent e is dropped before adding the ending. The third chart provides practice in doubling the final consonant on the base word before adding the ending. On the fourth chart, students change the y to i before adding the ending. The final chart provides mixed practice.
This activity is set up so students can either cut and paste or write the first word in each row. The format of each sheet remains the same, so once kids understand the activity they can focus on mastering the skill of adding –er and –est endings.
Read, Roll and Write Game
: Students roll a die to determine which ending to add to each word. They then read the word and write the word with the –er or –est ending. I find that this simple activity makes practice/reinforcement fun for students. Three sheets and a template for a die are included for this game
Thanks so much for stopping by and taking a look!
