This word has a silent 'g'.
3. Dolphins are the ____ creatures in the world!

If you are changing the root word, like happy, and it ends in a 'y' - we replace the 'y' for an 'i'.
4. The bird was ____ as it flew around the flower.
[ ] huming
[ ] humin

It happens to be a hummingbird. The word 'hum' has a short vowel sound, so we need to double the last letter then add 'ing'.

[ ] havn't
The apostrophe replaces the missing 'o'.

By adding the suffix 'ful' we are saying that he was full of pain!

We need to add 'd' then 'est' onto the word 'sad'.
