t is time to practice reading and spelling words with “sion”.

I’m learning a ton as I’m working through my daughter’s reading journey. For some of the lessons, I’m just learning as adult knowledge and don’t explain all of it to my little girl. This lesson was one of those. At some point, we will go back and discuss the rules for when to add “tion” vs “sion”. But for now, we just practiced saying “sion”, reading “sion” words, and then spelling “sion” words.

But for you, I wanted to share a few of the rules for when to use “sion” before we get into the activity I did with my little girl.

Rules for using “sion”

There are numerous rules for using “sion” but here are a few of the most common ones.

  1. When a verb ends with the letter “de” we add “sion”. For example, invade would turn to invasion.
  2. Next, we will see this with verbs ending in “ss”. Possess changes to possession, while confess becomes confession.
  3. Another place we will add the “sion” is with a verb ending in “mit”. We can see this in the word admit which will change to admission.
  4. Moving on, our next rule deals with the magic e in “ise” or “use”. When a verb ends with those three letters, you generally will need to add the “sion”. Revise changes to revision, and confuse to confusion.
  5. Finally, we will see the “sion” used after “pel”. For example, repel becomes repulsion.

As you can see, there are a lot of rules for using “sion”, and I know this is too much for my daughter right now. We will revisit this later, but for now I decided to just expose her to reading and spelling these new words. And that is where this activity came from.

I love puzzles and my little girl loves puzzles, but they do require just a little prep work.

  1. First, print off the puzzles on cardstock paper.
  2. Next, cut out the pieces.
  3. Laminate if you would like some extra durabitily.
  4. Finally, you are ready to go.

When I first started working on these words with my little girl, I chose three words and scrambled them up in front of her. I would then say one of the words while deliberately exaggerating the syllables. She would then spell out the word using the puzzle pieces in front of her.

Other times I would put the puzzle pieces together and then have her read the words. Since the words are divided into syllables, it was a little easier for her to sound them out and use her knowledge of syllable types to decode the words.

After a few days of doing both these ways, I let her have a go of it on her own. I still would only give her about three or four words at a time to keep it from being overwhelming. Once she would get a word put together, I would have her read it out loud to me. We were finally reading and spelling “sion” words.
