Hello,

 

Today we are going to be thinking about what we do to a base word that ends in the letter 'y' when we want to add a suffix like -ed, -ing, -er, -est, -ness, -ful.

 

Watch the clip to remind you of the rules.  Watch out for the exceptions to the rule too.

Make new words by adding the suffixes -ed, -ing, -er, -est, -ness, -ful

 

You cannot use all of the suffixes for every root word.  Think about which suffixes you can add to make a real word.

 

Example:  happy

 

happier

happiest

happiness

 

Then use one in a sentence.

 

The young boy had the happiest day because it was his sixth birthday and he had received some amazing presents.

 

Now you try.

 

  • tidy
  • reply
  • try
  • cry
  • funny
  • silly
  • crazy
