Excite your children with the "magic" of silent "e." This PowerPoint presentation will demonstrate how Magic "e" changes a CVC word. When Magic "e" appears, it "sends" its magic over one consonant to make the vowel say its own name. All vowels are marked to indicate whether they are long or short. This presentation has picture illustrations, animations and some limited sound effects to delight your students and keep them engaged. My students love it and it has helped them to grasp this often confusing concept.
