Product Description
Some students have a great deal of difficulty reading words with the suffix “ed”. Many read it as /ĕd/ on all words. There is a way to tell which sound this suffix is going to make, /ĕd/, /d/, or /t/.
If the baseword ends in a “voiceless” or “quiet” sound, “ed” will make the sound of /t/, if the baseword ends in a “voiced” or “noisy” sound, “ed” will make the sound of /d/, and if the baseword ends in a “d” or “t”, “ed” will make the /ĕd/ sound.
The first thing students need to know is that sounds can be “voiced” or “voiceless”. All vowels are voiced, but not all consonants. Have your students place their hand against their throat (their voicebox) to see if they can tell if these sounds are voiced or voiceless by the vibration:
t (voiceless) d (voiced)
k (voiceless) g (voiced)
f (voiceless) v (voiced)
p (voiceless) b (voiced)
p (voiceless) b (voiced)
s (voiceless) z (voiced)
The next thing students need to know is the difference between a baseword and a suffix. I have my students underline the baseword and circle the suffix.
Once students know about basewords, suffixes, and voiced and voiceless sounds, you can teach them when “ed” makes the different sounds – or have them experiment with words and discover it themselves!
There are two activities in this file:
1. Sound Sort – have students use the jars to separate the word cards by the sound “ed” makes in the word.
2. Flashcard game – Use the words cards, the “Don’t Bug Me” cards and the “You’ve Been Bugged” cards. Students take turns drawing a card and reading the word. They keep the card if read correctly. If they get a “Don’t Bug Me” card they keep that also to use if they get a “You’ve Been Bugged” card. If the student gets a “You’ve Been Bugged” card, they can surrender a “Don’t Bug Me” card, or, if they don’t have one, they lose one of their bug word cards. The student with the most cards at the end of the game is the winner!
