Dear Parents and Classmates,
This week in Unit 14, we are going to continue our work with suffixes. This week you will get to practice adding -er and -est suffixes to base words. Here are the spelling rules to consider:
1. For most words, simply add the suffix (e. g., high, higher highest).
2. For words ending in one vowel and one consonant, double the last consonant and then add the suffix (e. g., big, bigger, biggest).
3. For words ending in a silent e, drop the e then add the suffix (e. g., late, later, latest).
4. For words ending in consonant-y, change the y to i and then add the suffix (e. g., dry, drier, driest).
