Spotlight on Suffixes - Book Two, with over 80 worksheets, extends the work in Book One on common suffixes and suffixing rules. The book is in two parts, Part 1 dealing with basic suffix recognition and also giving systematic coverage of the spelling rules by which suffixes are joined to base words. This Part provides extensive practice of the 'double', 'drop-e' and 'change y to i' rules. Part 2 focuses on individual verb, noun and adjective suffixes such as '-ate', '-ify', '-ity', '-ment', '-ous', '-ible', and others.
The more common suffixes have worksheets at two levels of difficulty allowing for differentiated work within mixed ability classrooms. Spelling skills are thus very much linked to grammatical awareness and, by completing the worksheets, students will also extend their vocabulary and knowledge of word derivations.
Teachers will find the material in this book very useful especially for pupils from Years 1 to 5 (or Key Stages 1 to 2) and Special Needs, particularly for differentiated work when implementing the National Literacy Strategy.
The clear and uncluttered layout of the worksheets will also make them an ideal resource for Special Needs teachers working in the field of literacy with pupils of all ages. The comprehensive coverage of the subject is completed through additional appendices, word lists and detailed Teachers Notes and Guidelines.
