11) Applying Spelling Rules
Question 1
"Do I know a rule which can help me to spell the word?"

Write down answers to the following questions.
a) Oops - I wanted to write
snipping
, but I've written
sniping
. What have I forgotten to do?

b) I wanted to write
hoping
, but I've written
hopeing
. Aaargh! What have I forgotten to do?

c) I wanted to write
quiet
, but I've written
qiet
. D'oh! What have I forgotten to do this time?

d) I wanted to write the plural of
dog
, but I've written
dog's
. Why's this wrong?

e) I've written down
bashful
and I can't decide if it's correct or not. How can I work it out?

f) I wanted to write
pianos
, but I've gone and written
pianoes
. What rule have I forgotten?

g) Write down some words which really end in -oes in the plural.
Question 2
Can I think of other words - or bits of words - which will help me to spell this word?

Write down answers to the following questions.
a) Kate wanted to write
cell
but she's written
sell
. Which other words (or bits of words) could help her to remember which is which?

b) Abdulmalik wanted to write
interrupt
but he's gone and left out an
'r'
. Which other words (or bits of words) will help him to spell it correctly?

c) Beth wanted to write
deceive
but she's made a mistake and put "ie" instead of "ei". Which other words contain
'cei'
?

d) How can Steven remember whether to put one
's'
or two in
disappear
? Is it a single or a double
'p'
?
Spelling
a) I've forgotten the double '
p'
(to keep the vowel short)

b) I've forgotten to knock off the '
e'
before adding
ing
.

c) I've put a
'u'
after
'q'
.

d) "dog's" is a possessive form, or a spoken form of "dog is", but it's
not
a plural form.

e) The word
'full'
has a double
'l'.
The ending
-ful
has a single
'l'.


f) Most words ending in
'o'
just add
's'
in the plural.

g) potatoes, tomatoes, mangoes, cargoes, heroes, volcanoes.
Answers to Question 1
Answers to Question 2

Cell
is like
cellular, cellphone,
and
prison cell
.
Selling
is what
salesmen
do.

b) '
Inter'
- between, among (as in

);
'rupt'
occurs in

' to make
interrupt.

conceive, preconceive, perceive, receive,
(etc.)
