This lesson introduces the concept of raising letters to represent a prefix or suffix and gets you started with an easy one: ‘ing’. As we work through the prefixes and suffixes, write an extra one of each word or sentence if you have time – it’s all helpful to your learning. And remember to keep saying the words that are repeated three times with me.
The words used in the session are listed in the following film so you can practise until they come naturally. There’s also a sentence in speedwriting so you can test your reading skill.

This is the first of the reading exercises that you will find at the end of each lesson. If you can’t read a word, just move on and come back to it at the end. I hope you are enjoying reading and writing – when you’re using the raised ‘g’ for ‘ing’ easily, it’s time to move on.
