Worksheet Description

This worksheet is a vocabulary expansion exercise that revolves around the use of the suffix “-ly.” Students are presented with a list of root words and are asked to add “-ly” to each to form new words. These new words must align with the given meanings, which describe the characteristics of someone or something. The worksheet is a straightforward drill aimed at reinforcing the concept of how suffixes modify root words and their meanings.

The worksheet is trying to teach students how to form adjectives from root words by adding the suffix “-ly.” This addition typically turns nouns and verbs into adjectives that describe a characteristic. Through this activity, students learn to quickly identify and create words that describe states or qualities, enhancing their understanding of adjectives in the English language. The exercise also helps to build a richer vocabulary and aids in recognizing patterns in word formation.
