Need a song to help teach the rule of the silent "e" that helps them remember and apply it to other words? Kathy Griffin uses a familiar childrens' song and changes it to teach what readers do when they come to a word with an "e" at the end. These books will transition children over from reading C-V-C words and help build the number of words they can read. Use the books during guided reading, before word work, as a word search for word wall words, in the listening center, and as homework to help parents understand the "silent e" rule.
"IF THEY CAN SING IT, THEY CAN BE SUPPORTED IN READING IT." Kathy Griffin
Kathy Griffin has also created a multimedia file to help reinforce this song using visual strategies to help connect the song. Use the multimedia file on your digital projector, Smart Board, interactive whiteboard, or student computers. Differentiate to meet the needs of your students on grade level, struggling readers, or those who are ready for the next challenge.
