Below are some fun you tube clips which sparked our discussion about adding ‘ed’ or ‘ing’ to words. The discussion follows on from our conversations about tense. For example I am walking to school. (Present) Or Yesterday I walked to school. (Past).
Jasmin and I are using intentional teaching time to explore areas we have observed in the children’s writing which requires group focus time. We have notice children have been using words for example ‘shopping’ in their writing. The children have also been experimenting with adding different ending and changing words to express the correct tense in their stories or recounts.
When we are writing if we come to a word that has one syllable word that ends with one consonant and has one vowel – when you want to add ‘ed’ or ‘ing’ you need to double the consonant. For example wash, stop, rub, walk, hop are words that have one syllable, so when you add ‘ed’ or ‘ing’ you need to double the consonant.
This morning we continued our learning on 3D shapes. The children explored drawing different 3D shapes on the whiteboards. They had to show resilience and persistence, as they found it tricky turning a 2D shape into 3D shape.
