Today we learnt about looking closely at the suffix of a word

A suffix is the name that describes the spelling at the end of a word.  Eg. er= longer, shorter, higher etc.

We found it hard to think of words that had the same suffix as the words we were learning for www

so we Googled this.

It was pretty cool to see that lots of words use the same sound.  We think that if we learn the sound and how to spell it, we will be much better spellers.

Mya's example:
I can spell pictures but I'm not sure of creatures.  What can I do?
I know that they have the same sound at the end, so I can try using the same spelling.

What words do you know that you can use when you are a little stuck?
