We have been learning a lot about word endings lately (-ed and -ing). Last week, one of my students asked… “Mrs. Erickson, why do some words double the letter?”
run –> running
swim –> swimming
skip –> skipped
To teach my students the rule for doubling the final consonant when adding an inflectional ending, I made this flow chart. Click on the images below to download it for free!
This phonics lesson goes great with these little -ed, -ing characters (my students where so happy to see these guys again)! You can purchase these cute letter characters and a whole hands-on packet of inflectional word ending practice in my TpT store.
