Learning common root words allows students to build their vocabularies. Adding inflectional endings also allows the students to make new words. In this quiz, the students practice with words that end in "s," "ed" and "ing." With adding "s" or "es," the students will learn that this is a plural word. Adding "ed" means the event happened in the past. Adding "ing" means that the event is happening now.
