The 3 sounds of ed
Kick-ED, Help-ED…have you heard these type of mispronunciations? Some of my students think there is only one way to say the ed ending. They say it like the boy’s name ED and then just keep reading like it sounds like a real word.
We are working to correct this! And an easy way to work on the 3 sounds of ed is to do a word sort- I love and use word sorts all the time!
A good idea is to have students highlight or box the ending in a different color. This makes the ending stand out from the root word.
Students highlight the ed ending, cut out the word boxes, sort and then glue.

We're working on this too. Sorts are definitely a great way to fix up those ed confusions.

Thank you Maria! I am glad you find it useful. 🙂
Tammy, my students struggle with the 3 different sounds of ed. They want to use one sound only, because to them it sounds right. 🙂
You are welcome, Barbara! I love those umbrellas!
