This is an awesome package that includes instructional activities for learning the spelling exceptions of the -ed suffix. The activities include:
Student Spelling Exceptions Handout….3
"Change it" Worksheets for each rule…………..4
Irregular Past Tense Verbs Study Discussion of “5 for 5” Method………..7
Letter Tiles Activity…….8
Sorting Activity (64 word cards)…..12
“No You Didn’t” Activity …..17
I used this with my adult ESL students; however it would work for upper elementary and up. It is designed to last over several days (minimum of 7 days, more depending on if you do the 5 for 5 activity). I went in order of the table of contents, giving the students 1 activity a day within a short mini-lesson (10-15 minutes total a day). The first 3 days introduce the spelling exceptions in small chunks, and the additional days are practice of the exceptions by applying them within activities.
