What are double final consonants?
Sometimes called the FLOSS rule, the 1-1-1 rule, or the Sammy Loves Fried Zebras rule, certain words require a second final consonant. When a word is 1 syllable, has 1 short vowel sound, and ends with 1 s, l, f, or z sound, the final consonant must be doubled. This includes words like buzz, fill, pass, or cuff.
How should I use this resource in my classroom?
- Display the poster in your classroom. It can be printed in a large format and saved to use next year!
- The sorting cards make a great small group activity or a literacy center activity with a partner. Students will read the words on the cards and determine if they meet the requirements for the rule or not. For example, one card may say ‘mat’ and does not meet the requirements because it ends in /t/. Another card may say ‘bel’ and it does meet the requirements and needs another final consonant to be spelled correctly.
- The write and wipe cards must be laminated to be used correctly. They would be a great activity for a small group or student partners. Students will use dry erase markers to add a final consonant if it’s needed. Just like the sorting cards, there will be some words that do not need another final consonant, like fit or cup,
- The roll and read pages would be a great activity for students to complete with a partner. Students will roll a dice and read the double final consonant words next to the matching number. They can read the words aloud while their partner listens.
