Happy 2016! The beginning of this year is dedicated to spelling rules.
Double the f, l, s or z at the end of a one syllable word with a short vowel.
Does not apply when the final s sounds like /z/.
Does not apply to ending blends.
What spelling rules are you interested in learning more about?
Be sure to check back each week for a new spelling rule and activities to teach it!
I love Dite’s idea this week for helping students properly use ch or ck when spelling. The illustration in her post is wonderful!
Also, remember to teach your students that -ck comes at the end of a word, never at the beginning.
