If your learner's answers mostly don't match words in the "yes" column, and particularly if they are mixing up vowels, they need to work on words from the whole of Level 2. Click here for the Level 2 workbook, which targets all these patterns.

If they just make mistakes on the spellings with links below, click on the relevant links for wordlists to practice.

    Hi Alison – 

    Just a little note: I've done this level with a few kids and myself (!) and I find 'rax' is usually spelt 'racks' because it confuses the listener to have a single after a pattern of two (two wecks, two kengs then a rax). I tend to place it later in the test to avoid this confusion as children seem to think there is a pattern and the third should follow the same pattern as the first two. Or I draw a little monster and say "this is a rax, can you write 'rax'" so that it is really clear to them that we are talking about one, not two.

      Thanks, yes, I’ve found a similar thing, which I overcome by holding out my hands to show two objects for the plural, and then only one for the singular, and then I say “don’t write racks like dish-racks or luggage racks, it’s only one thing”. Perhaps I should make that explicit on the test, I guess I also use the test to show parents that we have a particular way of spelling plurals, but that sort of overlapping-purpose stuff usually means you don’t do either thing well, and I should stick to a single purpose. Thanks for the useful feedback, when I get a moment to rework I will think of how best to amend (by shifting “rax” to another spot or by making the instructions clearer).
