Spellings: Rule 24: able/ible and ably/iby suffixes

Use the powerpoint below to revise when to use the suffixes able/ible and ably/ibly.’ Use examples from the last slide to practice spelling the words accurately, choosing the correct suffix. Don’t do all of them at once- 10 a day is plenty.

English:

Today we are going to be looking at how to punctuate speech. Go through each slide on the powerpoint below and look at how to use speech punctuation. On the final two slides, look at how the comic strip speech bubble has been turned in to speech.

Then, complete the comic strip speech from below. You need to turn the comic book speech bubbles in to direct speech, making sure that you use the correct speech punctuation. You can write this in your book if you aren't able to print.
