To double the final consonant or not? This is the spelling question for many of our students! This flip book will help with their understanding.
This file contains a 7-page flip book that contains the spelling rule, examples, and student activities to identify closed/vowel-r syllables, vowel/consonant suffixes, a checklist to complete and practice. Just print, cut-out, layer the pages, and staple. The flip book is great to use with individual students, small groups, centers, or even an entire class. You can make one for each student or laminate and make for students to use with a dry erase marker.
The doubling rule (or 1:1:1) rule is when the base word is:
1 syllable – closed or vowel-r
Contains only 1 vowel
The vowel is followed by only 1 consonant
If the above conditions are met, and you are adding a “vowel suffix”, the final consonant doubles. If adding a “consonant suffix”, you simply add the suffix.
