Handwriting this week is linked to the spellings of root words that have suffixes.


A suffix is a letter or group of letters that goes on the end of a word and changes the word's meaning.

Some suffixes have specific uses. For example:

  • Adding -ing can change a noun into a verb, like garden to gardening.
  • Using the suffix -ed can change a verb to the past tense, like jump which becomes jumped.

Watch the video below to find out more.



In your very best handwriting, starting on the line, re-write these words with the suffixes on.


An example has been done for you.



Now choose one of the above word and write it in a sentence.
