-16 word cards WITH the suffix
-24 word cards WITHOUT the suffix, making the students sort and figure out how to add -es to the end of the word.
-3 different word sorts: whole group, independent/center work, and correct/not correct words - with writing extension
-Read the Room - different varieties
- ABC order
-pyramid words

The skill in this pack is only adding -s or -es to words that end in Y, not -ed or -ing.
