Words Ending in ‘tion’ PowerPoint Lesson

This resource contains a fully editable, comprehensive and interactive 90 slide powerpoint lesson on words ending in ‘tion’. This resource will help pupils and students to master the spelling of ‘tion’ words. (English programmes of study: Key Stage 2 National curriculum). There are many activities to re-inforce and consolidate the reading and spelling of these words.

In the first section pupils ‘read’ the ‘tion’ words - they include all the words suggested in the new National Curriculum - station, action, etc. Additional ‘tion’ words have been added that will be useful for pupils across the curriculum eg punctuation, fraction, addition, education, question, section, digestion and many more!

  • In the next section the emphasis is on the spelling of the words by ‘chunking’. The interactive powerpoint visually demonstrates how to do this.

  • Then pupils are challenged to spell ‘tion’ words not previously covered from the image on the slide.

  • The next activity involves pupils working in pairs or groups to find as many ‘tion’ words as they can in a timed exercise.

  • There is a section for pupils to identify the missing letters from ‘tion’ words.

  • There is a section that contains an ‘anagram’ challenge of some of the ‘tion’ words.

  • There is a section where pupils have to guess and then spell the missing words.

  • There is a sentence dictation section.
