Word Endings Foldable {Freebie}

Classroom Freebies Manic Monday My students are reviewing which words have to be changed when adding -ing and -ed.  I figured a foldable would be fun as well as flexible enough to meet my kids' needs.  I tweaked my free Prefix and Suffix Foldable.
Here it is before the flaps are folded back revealing what's underneath...


My students glue their foldables inside their interactive notebooks.  For this foldable, your students will only apply glue behind the "Word Endings," "-ing Happening Now," and "-ed Already Happened" sections.  They will cut all of the other sections to create foldable flaps.

As you talk about inflectional endings (letters added to the end of a word to change its meaning), you can have kids generate their own ideas for base words where nothing happens when an ending is added as well as words that have the final consonant doubled before adding the ending. (I've expanded this foldable to include more ending rules and you can find it {here}.  I tell my kiddos that most CVC words will need to have that final consonant doubled.  They will find that the vowel has a short vowel sound, and yet we always find exceptions...like words ending in /x/ like box.

So underneath each flap, students can generate words that fit each section.




If you like the fonts I used, get them for FREE at Rowdy in Room 300.  I used Rowdy Writing and Rowdy Funky.  Love them!


I hope this is something you can use.  I'd love it if you could follow me.  Thank you!

Enjoy!

I browse many, many teaching blogs and have never commented on any. However, I discovered your blog this morning, have been reading it all day (Seriously, all day. It's 10 in the evening right now.), and now have a desktop FULL of wonderful ideas I can't wait to use in my classroom. I couldn't leave your site before I thanked you for putting up your absolutely wonderful (and simple! Can't beat simple.) ideas. Please keep it up. I can't wait to check back for more ideas! :)
