Spelling Rules: -ge or -dge at the end of a word?
These no-prep spelling worksheets teach students the spelling rule that will help them know when to use -ge and when to use -dge at the end of a word. This product can be used as a guide for your spelling lessons, as word work, or as the perfect addition to your literacy centers.
Students start by investigating words that end with -ge and -dge and are given the opportunity to try and figure out the spelling rule on their own. The spelling rule is then introduced and students practice identifying words that follow the rule, as well as adding the correct endings to words and writing sentences of their own.

An answer key is included.
