Made for practicing the past tense concept of -ed, or for teaching the 3 sounds of -ed (Ed, d, t) when adding the -ed suffix. Students have a base word on one side and the -ed suffix on the matching puzzle piece.
8 "Ed" words, 8 /d/ words, and 8 /t/ words for a total of 24 words in all.
All words are fair words according to the Yoshimoto Orton-Gillingham teaching sequence.
Many ways to play:
Students draw base words from container. Read base word and add the -ed suffix, then say the whole word. Does the -ed suffix make the "Ed," /d/, or /t/ sound?
Use sorting mats to draw student attention to the different sounds that can be made when applying the -ed suffix. What's the pattern/rule?
