Worksheet Overview

QUESTION 1 of 10

A suffix is a letter or group of letters added to the end of a word. Knowing what a suffix means can help us to understand new words.

 

For example, the suffix -ly often tells us how something is done.

If a class is quiet while they are sitting on the carpet we say that they are sitting quietly.

 

If the word ends in -y we have to change it to 'i' before we add the suffix.
