Have some fun with your students as you teach (or review) the way silent e changes short vowel words to long vowel words. This PowerPoint starts with a jingle to help students learn this concept. Then after giving several examples, students are invited to become magicians themselves as they practice changing words. Finally, there is a song students can sing to the tune of "The Bear Went Over the Mountain" to keep this skill playing in their heads for a long time. This PowerPoint is lots of fun! Students love it!
