Double consonants

The use of double consonants can be grouped and taught teaching the rule that states that:

For words with one syllable: if they end with the sound f, s, l, z, the consonant will be doubled (such as buzz, doll, miss…) except for the words: if, pal, us, bus, yes, his.

For words that have more than one syllable: a short vowel has to be followed by two consonants (such as dinner, summer…) and a long vowel has to be followed by one consonant (such as acorn, famous).
