As mentioned in previous message there are no formal spelling tests anymore.
Adding -ing, -ed to root words
- If the final two letters are a single vowel followed by a single consonant, double the last consonant before adding -ed and -ing. e.g. root word – pat– patting/ patted.
- If the verb ends in the consonant letters, the endings -ed and -ing are simply added on.
- The y is changed to an I before adding -ed not not -ing e.g. vary – varying, varied
- The -e at the end of the root word is dropped before adding -ing and -ed. e.g. care – caring – cared.
Consonants = b, c, d, f, g, h, j, k, l , m , n , p, q, r, s, t, v, w, x, y, z
