Focus : -ly endings
This week, we have been studying the -ly endings to words. Often adding -ly to a word will change it from an adjective to an adverb. There are a few ways to add -ly to a word. Sometimes the spelling changes; sometimes it doesn’t.
Your task is to come up with as many -ly words as you can and sort them into groups according to how the original word is changed.
- gentle – gently
- happy – happily
- frantic – frantically
See how many of each type you can find.
