Replacing (Dropping Rule, E-Drop) Final E Suffixing with Word Sums: Bingo, Go Fish, & Wipe Out Games
Have fun practicing the replacing rule (dropping final E rule) for adding suffixes to words ending with a final e using a word sums. Word sums give students a great visual means to determine the suffixing rule to use. Students practice recognizing and verbalizing the reasons to replace a final, single e and the reasons not to replace it.
Students can use the word sum sheet included or a wipe-off board to record their word sums. At the end of the game, they can read all the words they made for additional practice. They could also create sentences, verbally or in writing, from their word list.
When students can explain their reasoning for replacing final e or not replacing it, this understanding becomes their own that they can apply independently.
If you’re adding a vowel suffix to a word that ends with a final e, you’ll replace the final e with the vowel suffix unless the needs to remain to mark that a preceding is pronounced /s/ or a preceding is pronounced /dʒ/ (j).

How do you play Wipe Out?
Write “wipe out” on several blank cards. Shuffle those into a group of word sum cards. Each player takes turns completing the word sum cards, trying to collect as many cards as possible without getting a dreaded Wipe Out card. They keep the cards they read. If they draw a Wipe Out card, they lose all the cards completed on that turn. The winner is the player with the most cards at the end.
