Spotlight on Suffixes Book 1 Common Suffixes and Suffixing Rules by Gillian Aitken

Activities on spelling skills and language awareness to complement structured literacy programmes (especially National Literacy Strategy Years One to Five and Special Needs). The 75 worksheets in Spotlight on Suffixes - Book 1 introduce the most common suffixes in English in a systematic manner, focusing on both the grammatical function of the suffix and the spelling rules concerning the joining of suffixes to base words. The Spotlight Series is a complete set of worksheets and activities to improve spelling skills, reading accuracy, grammar and phonological awareness. The series explores blends, suffixes and phonics through uncluttered, enjoyable exercises that are both classroom and attention friendly. The puzzles and games have been tested to engage as well as teach. Each book is deliberately non-age specific, allowing simple differentiation from early structured programmes through to Key Stage 3 and on to Adult Learning. Although the books offer valuable assistance to those with speech and communication difficulties, the activities are an excellent mainstream resource to promote language skills.All the worksheets in the Spotlight Series titles are photocopiable within one educational establishment, and are spiral-bound for strength and ease-of-use. Guidelines for teachers are included, as well as answers, where appropriate, to the worksheets.
