Spelling : Adding 'ing'
« on: July 27, 2013, 06:41:29 PM »
To add ‘ing’ to a word, look at the letter before the last letter. Is it a vowel ( a, e, i,o,u) If it isn’t a vowel, add ‘ing’. For example:

Sing                  singing

If it is a vowel, double the last letter, then add ‘ing’. For example:

Hop                     hopping

Be careful! This rule does not work for words ending in w, x or y. For example:

Play                       playing   
draw                      drawing

But, if the letter before it is a vowel, just add ‘ing’. For example:

Read                   reading

Thank you for your inspiring comments.

Many of our students make very silly spelling mistakes. I think they should be given some worksheets on spelling. They can be guided to play spelling bee games.

Rafi:
Spelling bees is a multi-player spelling game. It allows students from anywhere in the world to compete against one another while practicing spelling.It's full of fun and challenging.
