Spellings 19.9.17

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
