Study the word list: ss words

At the end of a word, sometimes you need to double a consonant after a short vowel sound. This happens in spellings when the short vowel sound is followed by one of these letters: f, s, and l.

In these examples, the s has been doubled after the short vowel sound. Say each word aloud as you learn it.
