How do you teach inflectional endings? Our standard says that the student "reads words with inflectional endings." This is my first time teaching first grade, and I have no idea where to begin. I figure we're supposed to teach s, es, and ed. What else? Does anyone have an interesting way to go about teaching them? Thanks for your help!

I teach my students to cover up the ending, read the root/base word then add the ending on. This seems to work pretty well. The hardest part seems to be the different sound of ed. We also practice writing them by writing a base word on individual whiteboards and then adding endings.

I follow open court but my kids seemed to pick it up quickly today (even right before Christmas Break). I told them if the word ends in a consonant and has a short vowel, you must double the consonant before you add the ending. If it ends in a consonant and has a long vowel, just to add the ending. If a word ends in a vowel, drop the vowel and add the ending. Just keep going over it.

This also might help too: A little poem from open court for adding -es is...For more than one, no need to guess, change y to i and add es.
