This worksheet features four sentences with missing words that end in ‘er’. Children need to fill in the correct choice, from a selection of three.
Each sentence in the worksheet provides a unique context, encouraging children to think critically about word meanings and their appropriate usage in sentences. This not only helps in learning spellings but also aids in understanding context clues, a vital reading comprehension skill.
In addition to filling in the blanks, encourage children to read the sentences aloud after completing them. This will help improve their reading fluency and pronunciation, particularly with words that have similar endings.
This worksheet contains illustrations that correspond with the sentences. These visual aids not only make the activity more engaging for young learners but also support visual memory and aid in word association.
Extend the activity by asking children to come up with their own sentences using ‘er’ ending words. This creative exercise can help reinforce their understanding and encourage them to apply what they have learnt in a practical context.
