Teacher Notes (not visible to students)

Discuss the meaning of the new words and the fact that they can’t use all of the suffixes on all of the words. The pupils can cross out any ‘non-words’ they tried out.    What do they notice about doubling the consonant?    Notes:  If the last syllable of a word is stressed and ends with one consonant letter which has just one vowel letter before it, the final consonant is doubled before adding any ending beginning with a vowel.  The consonant letter is not doubled if the syllable is unstressed. Possible answers - Cornering, cornered, awakened, awakening, forgetting, forgotten, beginning, beginner, gardening, gardener, preferring, preferred limiting, limited.
