Ed and Ing Suffix Worksheet
This suffix worksheet is designed for the 6 to 12-year-old children to guide them about suffixes -ed and -ing application.
Let the children be firm with the suffixes by working on our worksheets – Y rule of spelling, suffixes, and adjective building suffixes. This worksheet will help the child understand various types of suffixes thoroughly.
This suffix worksheet helps a child to understand the more 2 types of suffixes (ed and ing) along with their meaning and usage.
Suffix –ing and -ed
In our previous video lessons we have learned about different meanings of suffixes and how to form new words using root words and the suffix. Here in this worksheet, we will learn when to use -ing suffix and when to use -ed suffix.
Let us learn the suffix –ed and –ing rules and how suffixes changes the meaning of the root word.
Suffix meaning: A suffix is added to the end of the root word to change the meaning of the word.
Some suffixes have specific uses.
- Adding -ing can
- change a noun into a verb
- adds the meaning “still going on,”
For example- walk + ing = walking
- Using the suffix -ed can
- change a verb to the past tense
- adds the meaning “in the past”
For example – walk + ed = walked
- When the suffixes –ing or –ed are added to the root word the last letter is doubled if –
- The root word has a single syllable
- The root word has a short vowel
- And the short vowel is immediately followed by a consonant.
For example –
- Dip + ed = dipped
- Dip + ing = dipping
How to Practice the Suffix -ing and Suffix –ed Worksheet?
In this worksheet, when the suffix – ing and suffix –ed is added to the root word, it changes the tense of the root word. Here, the child will not only learn the use of these suffixes, but also would understand how the meaning of the root word changes in addition to these suffixes.
Allow the child to read the sentences given in the worksheet and add the relevant suffix –ing or suffix –ed in the blank drawn against a word. Ask the child to read the sentence again as it helps them understand how adding a suffix changes the meaning of the root word as well as the sentence.
For example –
John is read___ the bedtime story.
In the above sentence, the child will add the suffix ‘ing’ to the root word ‘read’.
Now, rewrite the sentence as –
John is reading the bedtime story.
The sentence would become an action still going on or the present continuous tense.
Let us take another example,
The zipper is jam___
Here, the appropriate suffix is ‘ed’ to the word ‘jam’. Also, the word jam is a single syllable word and has a short vowel. The consonant comes immediately after the short vowel hence here the last letter ‘m’ would be doubled.
Rewrite and read the sentence as –
The zipper is jammed.
The sentence would become an action that already happened in the past tense.
Encourage the children to read the words on their own. Forming the new words with suffixes will help them enhance their vocabulary. It further helps in reading and writing more complex sentences or stories.
Download the worksheet and start practicing the concept of suffix –ing or suffix –ed to form new words with different meanings.
