Miss Brooks’ Spelling Group:
Words ending in -cious and -tious
If the root words ends in ce, then the adjective form will end in cious
e.g. vice –> vicious space —> spacious
If the noun ends in tion, then the adjective form will end in tious
e.g. ambition –> ambitious infection –> infectious
Mrs Riddle’s Spelling Group:
Words ending in ing
Sometimes you need to remove the e at the end when you add the ing
e.g. hope –> hoping cope –> coping
Sometimes you need to double the last consonant when you add the ing
e.g. hop –> hopping hit –> hitting
Sometimes you don’t need to do anything, just add the ing!
e.g. walk –> walking laugh –> laughing
