LEARNING to make a difference

Tasks for the Week

 

Monday 1st February 2021

 

This week's spelling rule is words that end with the suffix -ful or -less.

 

Rule

 

The suffix - ful has one L unlike the word full. 

 

You can add the suffix to the root word.

 

e.g. hope + ful = hopeful

 

hope + less = hopeless

 

But if the root word ends in a 'y', change the 'y' to an 'i' and then add the suffix.

 

beauty + ful = beautiful

 

penny + less = penniless

 

Task

 

Follow the rule and add the suffixes to the following words.

 

help + ful = 

 

dread + ful =

 

truth + ful = 

 

plenty + ful = 

 

wonder + ful = 

 

fear + less = 

 

pain + less =

 

count + less = 

 

speech + less = 

 

sense + less = 

 

Extension

 

Can you think of 5 more words that end in the suffix -ful or -less?
