WALT: Use spelling rules for suffixes

 

Steps to success:

* I can explain what a suffix is.

* I can understand what 'syllable' means.

* I can understand what 'a stressed syllable' means

* I can add suffixes beginning with vowel letters to root words of more than one syllable.

* I can copy key words accurately.

* I can write sentences with correct punctuation.

 

The challenge task today builds on some of the learning we did at the start of the week. You will need to say each root word before working out the suffix addition spelling rule. Then you can find where the stressed syllable is in the root word.

A stressed syllable is the syllable that is:

* slightly louder than the other syllables in the word

* slightly higher in pitch than the other syllables in the word

* slightly longer in time taken to say than the other syllables in the word

The word banana is a really good example for identifying where the stressed syllable is in a word: ba-na-na. The second syllable is stressed.

 

Take your time working through these challenges. Some of them are very tricky. You can use a dictionary to help you. Please do email if you need help.
