Reading Word Endings can be tricky for young readers. Even if they can decode the words, they don't always understand the meaning that the endings add. Teaching Word Endings also highlights the importance of reading all the way through a word. This unit has everything you need to teach and practice this essential reading skill!

The Word Endings covered in this unit are:
Vowel Y (both sounds)
Plurals (-s, -es)

Comparatives (-er, -est)
-ly and -ful

Included are:
- directions for using the program and resources
- a teacher's guide with step-by-step directions for introducing the sounds in an engaging way
- anchor charts in three sizes (for teaching, posting on a focus wall, and flash cards/mini-books for small group review)
- clipboard companion printables (for student use during instruction)
- rule poems/reminder posters
- 2 types of printables for word work with each type of ending
