Transcript Adding Suffixes to Base Words (-ed) — Let’s Practice!

Goopaw says get ready to practice adding suffixes to base words. Remember, the suffix -ed changes words from present tense to past tense! Add the correct suffix to the word play. Play ends with a vowel then a y so add -ed to make the word played. Let's look at another word. Add the correct suffix to the word crawl. Crawl ends with two consonants so add -ed to make the word crawled. Let's look at the next word. Add the correct suffix to the word bury. Bury ends with a consonant then y, so replace the y with an i, and add -ed to make the word buried. Let's look at another word. Add the correct suffix to the word vote. Vote ends with a silent e so drop the e and add -ed to make the word voted. Here is the next word. Add the correct suffix to the word nap. Nap is a one syllable word, with one short vowel, and one consonant after the vowel so double the p and then add -ed to make the word napped. Let's look at the final word! Add the correct suffix to the word blend. Blend ends with two consonants so add -ed to make the word blended. Goopaw had so much fun practicing with you today! See you next time!

  • What does the suffix -ed do?

    Hints

    Look at this example: Yesterday I played with my friend. The word play has the suffix -ed. When did they play with their friend - in the past or present?

    Solution

    The suffix -ed changes words from present tense to past tense.

    For example: Today I will play, yesterday I played.

    I will vote. Last year I voted.

  • Add the correct suffix.

    Hints

    Remember, when a word is a one syllable word with one short vowel, and one consonant after the vowel, we double the last letter and then add ed.

    For example: Today I will drop off my kids at daycare. Yesterday, I dropped off my kids at daycare.

    Remember, when a word ends with a silent e, we drop the e and add ed.

    For example: Today I will bike to school. Yesterday I biked to school.

    Solution

    The correct suffixes look like this: jumped, baked, mopped.

    Today I will jump on my trampoline. Yesterday I jumped on my trampoline. Since jump ends with a vowel then a consonant, we add ed to make the word jumped.

    Today I will bake some cookies. Yesterday I baked a cake. Since bake ends with a silent e, we drop the e and add ed to make the word baked.

    Today I will mop the kitchen. Yesterday I mopped the bathroom. Mop is a one syllable word with one short vowel, and one consonant after the vowel, so we double the p and then add ed to make the word mopped.

  • Fill in the correct suffix.

    Hints

    Remember, when a word ends with a silent e, we drop the e and add ed.

    For example: Move becomes moved. Yesterday my family moved.

    Remember, when a word ends with two consonants, we add ed.

    For example: pass becomes passed. I passed my exam!

    Solution

    The words are danced, used, and smelled.

    Today I will dance, yesterday I danced. Since dance ends with a silent e, we drop the e and add ed to make the word danced.

    Today I will use the computer. Yesterday I used the computer. Since use ends with a silent e, we drop the e and add ed to make the word used.

    Today I will smell the flowers. Yesterday I smelled the flowers. Since smell ends with two consonants, we add ed to make the word smelled.

  • Fill in the past tense version of the word.

    Hints

    Remember, when using -ed, think about how each word ends.

    Remember, when we have a one syllable word with one short vowel, and one consonant after the vowel, we double the consonant and then add ed to make the word past tense.

    Example: I will drop off the gift at your house. I dropped off the gift at your house.

    Solution

    The words are sneezed, cooked, wagged, and learned.

    Last week my allergies were so bad, I sneezed so many times. Since sneeze ends with a silent e, we drop the e and add ed to make the word sneezed.

    Yesterday you cooked a delicious dinner. Since cook ends in a vowel and a consonant, we add ed to make it cooked.

    When I met your dog, he wagged his tail! Since wag is a one syllable word with one short vowel, and one consonant after the vowel, we double the g and then add ed to make the word wagged.

    I learned so much last year. Since learn ends in two consonants, we add ed to make the word learned.

  • Choose the correct words.

    Hints

    Remember, when a word ends in silent e, we drop the e and add ed.

    Solution

    Last week I climbed a big tree. Climb ends in two consonants, so we add ed to make the word climbed.

    Yesterday we skated on the frozen lake. Skate ends in silent e, so we drop the e and add ed to make the word skated.

  • Type or write the suffixes.

    Hints

    Remember, if we have a one syllable word with one short vowel, and one consonant after the vowel, we double the consonant and then add ed.

    For example: Shop becomes shopped. Yesterday I shopped for groceries.

    Solution

    Dear Grandma,

    I want to tell you about my week at camp! The first day, I jumped out of bed with excitement. I played with my friend, Then, I chased him into the lake! After that, we skipped rocks on the water. We went in a canoe, but it tipped over. I had a great time and I smiled a lot.

    From, Jack

    Jump and play both end with two consonants, so we added ed to make them jumped and played.

    Chase and smile both end with a silent e, so we dropped the e and added ed to make chased and smiled.

    Skip and tip are one syllable words with one short vowel, and one consonant after the vowel, so we double the consonant and and added ed to make the words skipped and tipped.
