Spelling Rules/Patterns:

Lesson 1: Special Sounds /O/ sounds like /ŭ/ This often happens before v, n or th. /A/

sounds like /ŭ/. When you hear a short /u/ sound it is a syllable by itself,

write it with a. /o/ in shovel /a/ in banana

Lesson 2: Spelling Patterns /ear/ sounds like /ēr/ /ear/ sounds like /ār/ /ear/ sounds

like /ŭr/ ear in ear ear in bear ear in earth

Lesson 5: Silent Letters-When k or g come before an ‘n’, they are silent. /kn/ /gn/

Lesson 6: Silent Letters-When ‘w’ comes before ‘r’, the ‘w’ is silent. When ‘b’ comes

after ‘m’, the ‘b’ is silent. /wr/ /mb/

Lesson
7: Spelling Patterns /dge/ is used to spell the /j/ sound at the end of
a word or syllable directly after a short vowel. /eigh/ says /ā/
/dge/ /eigh/

Lesson 8: Spelling Patterns-OUGH has six sounds, and is found in only twenty-two

common base words. /ough/ sounds like /ō/, /ŏ/ /oo/, /ow/, /ŭf/ and /

ŏf/

Lesson 9: Final Syllable-URE sounds like /yur/ TURE sounds like /chur/ /ure/ /ture/

Lesson 10: Suffixes -The suffixes “-tion” and “-sion” are both used to create nouns

from verbs. /tion/ sounds like /shun/ /sion/ sounds like /zhun/

Lesson 11: Suffixes -Add –ed to a verb to change it to the past tense. When a word

ends in ‘e’, drop the ‘e’ and add ‘ed’. When a word ends in ‘y’, change the

‘y’ to ‘i’ and add ed. When a word ends in a vowel + ‘y’, add ed. When a

word ends in a vowel + consonant, double the consonant and add ed.

/ed/ can say ‘d’, ‘t’, and ‘ed’.

Lesson 12: Plural Nouns-‘S’ and ‘ES’ -To make a regular noun plural, add ‘s’. If the

singular noun ends in ‘s’, -ss, -sh, -ch, -x, or -z, add ‑es. Singular nouns

ending in -s or -z, require that you double the -s or -z prior to adding

the –es. /s/ /es/

Lesson 13: Plural Nouns-words ending in ‘Y’-If the singular noun ends in ‘y’ and the

letter before the ‘y’ is a vowel, add an ‘s’. If a singular noun ends in ‘y’ and

the letter before the ‘y’ is a consonant, change the ‘y’ to ‘i’ and add ‘es’.

/s/ /es/

Lesson 14: Plural Nouns-words ending in ‘F’ -If the word ends with ‘f’ or ‘fe’, the f is

often changed to ‘ve’ before adding the ‘s’. There are a few words that are

exceptions to the rule. Those you add ‘s’. /ves/ /s/

Lesson 15: Irregular Plural Words-Some English nouns are identical in both the

singular and the plural forms. Many of these are names for animals. Some

words change their form completely.

Lesson 16: The Rabbit Rule -The Rabbit Rule says that if a word has two syllables, the

vowel in the first syllable is short and there is only one consonant sound

between the vowels, then the medial consonant is doubled

Lesson 17: Contractions-Contractions are a way of using an apostrophe to splice two

words into one, eliminating a syllable. ~not

new word or change the function of the original word. Suffix –ed means

state. When adding –ing to a word ending with a vowel and a consonant,

double the ending consonant before adding the suffix -ing -ed -ing

can be done. Suffix -en means become. -able -en

Lesson 27: Suffixes-Suffixes are letters which we add to the end of a word to make a

new word or change the function of the original word. Suffix –y means

characterized by or inclined to. Words that end in ‘e’, take off the ‘e’ and

then add ‘y’. Words that end with a short vowel and a consonant, double

the final consonant before adding –y. (except words which end with -x).

Most other words, just add –y. Suffix -ly means resembling. -y -ly

Lesson 28: Suffixes-The Doubling Up Rule. The doubling up rule states that, when

adding a vowel suffix to a single syllable word that ends with one vowel

followed by one consonant, we should double the final consonant.

Sometimes a ‘y’ is treated as a vowel. Single syllable words that end in a

vowel plus “w,” “x” or “y” don’t require doubling the final letter when

adding a vowel suffix

Lesson 29: Suffixes-Drop the ‘e’. Drop the ‘e’ at the end of words when adding a

suffix that begins with a vowel. bake+er=baker

Lesson 30: Suffixes-Change the ‘y’ to ‘i’. Any word that ends in a consonant plus ‘y,’

change the ‘y’ to ‘i’ and add the suffix. Study+i+ed=studied
