We hope you enjoy seeing what we have been learning about on our page

In our spelling, we have been exploring the rules for applying suffixes beginning with consonant letters: -ment, -less,-ful, -ness

 

We noticed that consonant suffixes (-ment, -ness, -ful, -less, -ly) are added straight onto most root words, without any change to the last letter of the word.
Exceptions are: 1) argument 2) Root words ending in -y, if the root has more than one syllable, for example. merriment, happiness, plentiful, penniless, happily.


We played a game, using root and suffix cards to build words. Team members had to agree that a real word has been created. At the end of the activity, partners challenged each other to spell words created by roots and suffixes, and then used the card to check. 
We found some roots can be used to create many related words, e.g. mind – mindful, mindless, mindlessness, unmindful, mindfulness
