Product Description
This is a fabulous and fun packet for students to use to develop the concepts included in the suffix "-es!"

Please note the preview file does not include the answer keys, but each student activity worksheet (except student generated vocabulary in the vocabulary graphic organizer (VGO) does have an answer key included in the pdf file.

Students who have used this packet in my private practice love doing the work, but more importantly internalized the concepts that are embedded in the suffix "-es" like noun versus verb.

Check out the teacher supports and resources prior to working with your student (s.) Though basic in its design, provides a wealth of background knowledge for the adult who may not be familiar with the specific strategies used in the packet.

It is my hope that this multisensory approach to the suffix -es will support your student(s) ability to use the suffix, and understand its part of speech as being either a noun or verb. This concept is difficult for some students to grasp, but after going through the lessons in this packet, will have a stronger appreciation and understanding of the concepts embedded in the suffix "-es."
