Week 6 presents the suffix -tion All lessons are based upon the highly acclaimed strategies in Patricia Cunningham's "What Really Matters in Spelling." Children learn to spell by learning common spelling rules and learning to spell roots, prefixes and suffixes. Lessons are laid out in an easy to follow, time saving format. For best results students keep a composition notebook for all words and note taking throughout the year. Explicit directions are provided in the first flipchart, Lesson 1, for setting up the notebooks. Flipcharts all come with a free printable puzzle!

These lessons are presented in such a way that children understand the concepts easily and look forward to grammar days!
