Suffix Spelling Rules Games – Doubling (1-1-1), Drop E, Change Y to I



Adding suffixes to base words can be tricky for many of our students. This resource will support your students’ learning of 3 common suffix rules: doubling (or 1-1-1 rule), drop e rule, and changing y to i. This aligns very well to the Orton-Gillingham scope and sequence and provides a fun, multisensory opportunity for students to apply their new learning of these suffix generalizations. 3 variations of gameplay are included in this one low-prep resource! Visual student-friendly directions are provided to support student understanding of the game rules and encourage independent play during centers. The 3 games included are very similar to games your students likely already know how to play (UNO, Chutes and Ladders, and Dominoes) to simplify the process even more. We understand how valuable instructional time is and you do not want to have to spend a ton of time pre-teaching expectations for gameplay. 

Your students are sure to be motivated to practice reading and spelling words with suffixes with this 3 in one resource. This resource is for you if you are in need of a product that provides the materials to successfully practice reading and address spelling rules of words with suffixes.
