Updated 1/18/16 to include TWO separate power points. Each contains different words for added practice and both have interactive slides at the end to monitor student understanding. I have also added a wordsearch and an assessment plus 2 posters to display for reinforcement.
This is a great way to explain the rule for doubling final consonants before adding a suffix that begins with a vowel. Each slide begins with a root word. Then questions appear: 1. Is this a one syllable word? 2. Is the vowel short? 3. If there only one consonant after the vowel? 4. Do I need to double the final consonant? I always ask the question - "What would happen if I didn't double the consonant?" Student can see that if consonant not doubled, the vowel would become long. Then a cute picture appears to help hold interest. Hope this is helpful. Please let me know how you like it. Thanks
