Yay! It’s another set of free printable phonics books! Set 16 focuses on ed and ing words.

Have you see our free phonics books?
Each set focuses on a particular phonics pattern or group of patterns.
Set 16 is all about reading words with the ed and ing endings. We’ve had ed and ing books before, but those were word family books (bed, red, wed; sing, ring thing). This set is all about the suffixes.
You’ll find six books in the download.
- Base word + ed (locked, dressed, mixed, spilled, waited, cracked)
- E-drop + ed (raked, raised, raced, waved, baked, chased)
- Double final consonant + ed (stopped, ripped, stirred, shopped, begged, shredded)
- Base word + ing (sweeping, shouting, spraying, cleaning, dusting, holding)
- E-drop + ing (riding, biting, racing, driving, shaking, smiling)
- Double final consonant + ed (sitting, running, dropping, trimming, hitting, sitting)
Here’s a sample book! This is the “e-drop + ing” book.
For each new word, I’ve highlighted two parts. The “ing” ending is green, and the phonics pattern we’ve learned previously is orange. In this book (where the e is dropped before adding ing), that pattern is a little harder to notice that in some of the other books.
There is a lot of opportunity to review sight words that your child may have learned from my free sight word reader collection.
Yes, I know… these aren’t actual stories. But don’t worry — the funny pictures will keep your child engaged!
One thing I love about these sets is that they move at a manageable pace. As early readers, my kids were frustrated by purchased phonics books that accelerated far too quickly. Since these books have only a sentence per page, your child can really focus on the new pattern.
Sometimes you’ll see a longer sentence. On this page your child can review previously learned patterns: ir as in girl, ust as in dust, er as in her, and oy as in toy.
Finally, your child can re-read all the new words he’s learned.
How to print and assemble:
- Separate the stack into each individual book. Each book consists of two pages front to back.
- Cut across the horizontal center of the pages.
- Insert the pages into each other, using the page numbers as a guide.
- Staple with a long arm stapler.
