Never-ending letters - teaching and learning the spelling of English word endings.

This is by my favourite spelling guru/teacher Johanna Stirling from The Spelling Blog

"It's always easier to learn something if you know the reason for it. In the PowerPoint presentation above we see which letters are not usually found at the end of native English words and how this affects spelling.

Please feel free to use the PowerPoint as you like and share it widely. Just two rules:
Please don't change anything in it (if there's anything that needs changing, please write and let me know)
Always link back to The Spelling Blog. Thank you.

The above embedded version below doesn't have animations. You may think that's a good thing! But actually if you want to use the presentation for teaching it's better to have them - helps learners focus on new information better. So here's a version with simple, useful animations: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/9063559/Word%20endings.ppsx
