Idea 281: FREE Poem Resource for Adding Suffixes to Words Ending with ‘y’, ‘Santa Contest’



This is a resource I made to teach the Year 2 National Curriculum statutory requirement: “Adding –ed, –ing, –er and –est to a root word ending in –y with a consonant before it” where the guidance is: “The y is changed to i before –ed, –er and –est are added, but not before –ing as this would result in ii. The only ordinary words with ii are skiing and taxiing.”

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