This center will help students practice reading words with inflected endings (ed, ing, er, est). Students will look at each butterfly card, write the word on the first column of their recording sheet, and then write the base word in the second column. (ex. card says "swimming" - student will write "swimming" in the first column and "swim" in the second column) This will help students see that some words whose base word ends in y or a sneaky e have to be changed a little before the ending can be added, and also will help them notice words that have a double consonant before the ending.
