Students will learn about the inflectional ending -s for verbs, connecting the spelling of the word to its grammatical meaning.
Students will identify how the letter s is pronounced at the end of words.
Students will identify the base verb and -ing inflectional ending (present progressive tense marker).
Don’t say the word before confirming the spelling and pronunciation with students. Help them listen and identify the sound that an inflectional ending makes to understand how the letter s at the end of the words has more than one pronunciation.
