Our spellings this week focus on an important spelling rule: drop the y for an i. This is a common spelling rule in the English language. In many root words ending in y, we change the y for an I when we change the word. For example, happy can be happier or happiest. This week, children should find words ending in y and explore how they can change the word – are there any exceptions to the rule? Here are a few words to get you started:

cry                         try                         worry                   copy                     funny
