There are many spelling rules
when it comes to words with inflected endings
. Spelling and reading go hand in hand, especially with these tricky words. If we want our students to be able to read these words, they need to know how to remove an ending and look for the base word.
This resource is color coded
, which will allow your students to easily manipulate the base words, double consonants, and endings. The word cards will assist your students build, and break apart words
. Through this hands-on activity
, your readers will better understand the spelling and reading rules of words with inflected endings.

This would be a great teacher guided center. You could first introduce how to manipulate the cards, and explain how the words are made. You can give the students the words list, to show the variance of the endings. The following week, you could move this same activity to a collaborative student center. Now without the word list, students could work together to add endings to given base words, and record their answers on the page provided.
