According to the Y rule in spelling generalization,
If a word ends in -y preceded by a consonant, change the y to -i, then add the suffix. For example –

How to Practice the Y Rule of Spelling Worksheet?
In this worksheet, a child needs to add a suffix to the base word with y to make the new word by following the Y Spelling Rule.
Here a child is provided with the root word with y in the end and the suffix to form the new word.
- Carry + ed = carried
Here y is preceded by a consonant hence it changes to I when the suffix -ed is added to it.
- Fly + ing = flying
Here also, y is preceded by a consonant, but the suffix begins with the letter i, hence, y would remain as it is in the new word. The new word formed would be flying.
- Shy + ly = shyly
The above example follows the exception to the Y Rule of Spelling.
Encourage the children to read the root word, suffix, and the new word loudly. This helps in better understanding the application of y to i spelling rule and comprehending the rule properly.
