Updated 11/30/14! Identifying the different sounds of the past-tense suffix -ed can be a difficult concept for some students, especially as they move between spelling stages. The study of syllables and affixes is an important part of word work in the intermediate grades. This packet contains engaging, kid-tested activities that will help your students become more word savvy.
Inside you will find:
→ Helpful Tips for Teaching the Sounds of -ed
→ 3 Different -ed Word Sorts for Scaffolding Instruction
→ Choice of Sorting Mats
→ Demonstration Cards
→ A Fun Card Game (Slap it First!)
→ A Self-Checking Answer Key for Students (Card Game)
→ Flip Flap Books
→ Exit Tickets
→ Answer Keys for the Teacher
→ Suggestions for Integrating Shared Writing
Because this packet includes options for printing in color, grayscale, and/or black and white, I highly recommend scrolling through the pages before printing. I learned this the hard way! You will definitely save time, ink, and stress if you skim the pages before hitting "print!"
