Sometimes it is difficult to know when to add or change letters in a given word prior to lengthening it. This game aims to assist in that by teaching students through fun and repetition.
At the beginning, the game reminds players about two of the rules of word lengthening – either doubling the last letter, or changing “y” to “ie”. It then gives the option to testing for either one, after which the game begins. Students are asked to fish for the root word by using the rod that represents the correct lengthened word. If they’re able to choose correctly, the root word is “fished” successfully; otherwise, it swims away.
