The common suffix “ed” is pronounced three different ways, (wanted, dropped, filled) which can cause difficulties for young students who are learning to read and spell.
Do your students sometimes use a phonetic spelling and write words like “jumpt”, “pulld”, and “talkt”? The Three Sounds of ED Game is a unique, easy-to-play game that will help your students learn this important spelling rule.
Three key words help students to isolate and remember the three sounds that the “ed”suffix makes. The key words have been specifically chosen to go with a kinesthetic lesson that helps students remember the key words and sounds almost instantly.
Three game boards are included. There is a blank board so that you can customize the key words if your classroom already uses a key word approach. My key word game board and poster comes in two versions because some phonics programs use /ӗd/ and some use /ĭd/ to indicate the sound at the end of words like “lifted.”
