Spelling - Eliminating 'e': Activity 2

Sort the examples into two groups

DROP 'E'
KEEP 'E'
hope + -ed → hoped
nice + -est → nicest
rude + -est → rudest
bake + -er → baker
mine + -er → miner
mine + -ed → mined

Answers

(If they were in the KEEP 'E' group they would have a double e – final e of base + initial e of suffix - but they do not.)

How are these examples different from the examples we looked at before?

Do they fit the pattern identified in Activity 1?
