Monday - Adding ed to words ending in y

When you add 'ed' to words ending in 'y' you need to look closely at the letter just before the 'y'. 

If it is a consonant you take off the 'y' and add an 'i', and then 'ed'. 

An example of this is the word try-  r is a consonant so we take off the 'y' add an I and add 'ed' -tried.

If the letter next to the 'y' is a vowel, then you just add 'ed'.  An example of this is the word play-  'a' is a vowel, so we just add 'ed'- played

 

These are the vowels: a, e, i, o, u  All the other letters of the alphabet are consonants. 

 

Watch the video and then have a go at the activity sheet.

Tuesday - adding ed to words ending in y

Do you remember from yesterday what vowels and consonants are?  That's right, vowels are: a, e, i, o,u that means that all the other letters in the alphabet are consonants.

 

For this session we are going to add 'ed' to word ending in 'y'. For example: cry, the letter next to the 'y' is a consonant, so we take off the 'y', add and 'i' and then add the 'ed'. Cried.

 

Watch the video and have a go at the spelling sheet.

Wednesday - adding est to a word ending in 'y'

Just like before, you are going to look carefully at the letter after the 'y', if it is a consonant, we take off 'y', add an 'i' and then add an 'est'.

For example: funny, the letter next to the 'y' is a consonant, so we take off the 'y' and add an 'i' and then an 'est'. Funniest.

 

Watch the video and then have a go at the spelling sheet and then perhaps making for own word search with these words.

Have a go at the spellings and the activity, after watching the video.

Friday - Adding ed and ing to split long vowel sounds.

To day we are looking at words with the spilt long vowel sound.  These are words like bake, like, hope, and joke.  The e is silent, but it makes the vowel say its own name and not its sound. The vowel and the e are always separated by a consonant. 

 

I would like you to find as many of these types of words as you can in your reading books, story books, or other reading material that you use at home. 

 

When we want to make these words in to past tense words like 'hoped'.  We drop the e and then add ed.  When we want to make it present tense, we are doing it now.  We drop the e and add ing. So hope becomes hoping.  

 

See if you can do this with other spilt long vowel sounds. 

We call them spilt because their is a consonant between the vowel and the e.  We sometimes call this the magic e.
