Our spelling pattern this week is adding the suffix -es/-s to. 

Here is a little rule that can help you with those tricky words ending in -y.

If the words ending in y have a consonant before the y, then it needs to be changed to an i and then add –es. If the words ending in y have a vowel (a,e,i,o,u) before the y, then you just add -s.

Here are some example words:

churches

beaches

lollies

catches

flies

benches

parties

emergencies

rushes

trolleys

cries

tries

buzzes

foxes

lorries
