About the Worksheet

The Ending Game is a fun and interactive worksheet designed to help students practice reading and identifying words that end with the suffixes "-ing" and "-ed". This engaging game board activity combines elements of chance and strategy, making it an enjoyable learning experience for children.

Players roll a die and move forward the corresponding number of spaces on the game board. They must then read aloud the word they land on, which ends in either "-ing" or "-ed". If the word ends with "-ed", they move back one space, but if it ends with "-ing", they stay on the space until their next turn.

This interactive and printable worksheet, not only reinforces the recognition of word endings but also encourages active reading, turn-taking, and following instructions. By navigating through the game board and adjusting their movements based on the word endings, children develop their reading fluency and comprehension skills in a fun and interactive manner.

The interactive worksheet can be played online, allowing for easy access and engagement, while the printable PDF version offers the flexibility of a physical game board that can be printed and played anywhere.
