Idea 279: Free Poem Resource for Teaching Adding Suffixes to Words Ending in ‘e’, ‘Hiker Biker’



This is a short poem I’ve put together to model some of the examples from the National Curriculum for the Year 2 statutory requirement to teach “Adding the endings –ing, –ed, –er, –est and –y to words ending in –e with a consonant before it”, where the guidance is “The –e at the end of the root word is dropped before –ing, –ed, –er, –est, –y or any other suffix beginning with a vowel letter is added.”

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