Spelling Sort (9/11 - 9/15)

Sort #7 - Plural Endings: Adding -es
Here's what to remember when you are sorting this week's words: 
  • For words ending in -ch, -sh, -x, and -s - add -es.
  • For all other words, just add -s.
    • Tip: Notice that all words ending with -es have two syllables. Words ending with -s only have one syllable. 
    • Singular and Plural Nouns: Remember that -es is a suffix that turns the root-word into a plural noun. When you study your words, try spelling the root word without a suffix, and then adding the suffix to make it plural.
    • OddballIt looks like "clothes" ends with -es, but if you cover the -es, you'll notice that you end up with "cloth." "Cloth" is not the same as "clothes." It does not follow the same rules as the rest of the words in the sort.
