Idea 276: FREE Poem Resource for Modelling Doubling Consonants When Adding Suffix, ‘Runner Bunny’



This is a short poem I put together that uses lots of examples from the National Curriculum to teach one of the statutory requirements listed for Year 2, namely “Adding –ing, –ed, –er, –est and –y to words of one syllable ending in a single consonant letter after a single vowel letter”, where the guidance is “The last consonant letter of the root word is doubled to keep the /æ/, /ɛ/, /ɪ/, /ɒ/ and /ʌ/ sound (i.e. to keep the vowel ‘short’).”

Like this? Then consider buying a book of poetry by Michael RosenSteve Turner or Allan Ahlberg to read to your children.
