Lesson 28 Day 1
A suffix is added to the end of a word. Recognizing suffixes in words can help readers pronounce and understand words.
Read the information and review the chart on Student Edition page 352. Notice how the chart is organized.
As I read the suffix –able in the chart, I see that it means “capable of.” when –able is added to the word value, the new word is valuable. Value means “how much something is worth.” Valuable means “capable of worth” or “worth a lot.”
Let’s review the other suffixes in the chart.
Spellings often change when suffixes are added. Notice how the final e in value is dropped when –able is added, and how y in mystery is changed to I when –ous is added.
Let’s complete the chart with the underlined words on page 353. First, divide the word into its root word and suffix. Next, identify the meaning of the root word. Then identify the meaning of the suffix.
As Benjamin Franklin grew, his curiosity, his sense of humor, and his brilliant mind turned him into a man with many lives.

“Happy ‘Holi’ Day!”
Holi is a big festival in India to celebrate the beginning of spring.
Last spring, I went to India for the first time to visit my cousins and to celebrate Holi. I had not participated in Holi before. I found out that everyone in the community joins in, and the celebration lasts several days.
When we arrived at my cousins’ hometown, everyone was already dancing and singing. My favorite day of Holi, though, was the carnival of colors.
That day, we all went outside and put colored powder on each other. In no time at all, we looked like a human rainbow. The powders were made of herbs that smelled nice. That made it even better. Then, someone began to throw colored water! We filled water balloons and used special sprinklers to get each other wet with color. We shouted, “Bura Na Mano…Holi Hai!” which means, “Don’t be mad…it’s Holi!”
Celebrating Holi with my cousins was the best holiday I ever had. I am going to celebrate it next spring—right in my own backyard. As my cousins said, “Holi is for everyone!”
