Word Ending Patterns: -sion, -tion, -cher, -ture, and -sure (Levels 6-6 and 6-7)
Levels 6-6 and 6-7 focus on some word endings that students sometimes confuse with each other. Level 6-6 focuses on the -sion and -tion endings. The ten words used in this level are fraction, action, reaction, nation, conclusion, equation, direction, section, mission, and tension.
Level 6-7 focuses on the commonly-confused -cher, -ture, and -sure endings. The ten words used in this level are picture, future, nature, pitcher, pressure, capture, mixture, pleasure, treasure, and adventure.
For all of these words, it's important for students to begin to recognize these endings as a single chunk of the words in which they are found. Students trying to sound out a -tion ending will obviously struggle. Our hope is that you can teach these endings as separate entities to be learned while your students are using these levels!
