- Help students understand how sometimes adding e to the end of a word makes the vowel say the long sound.
- To use this activity, cut out the column with the "e"'s and have students read the word without the e first (the short sound) and then add the e and read the word with the long vowel sound.
- This activity will help students differentiate between long and short vowel sounds.
- large "Magic E" wand and 19 large words for teacher demonstration
- smaller "Magic e" wands (color and black and white versions) and 20 (same words as the larger words) smaller flashcards for student practice (simply need to be cut out) (great for word work or center practice)
- one sheet with all 20 words with magic e's (great for take-home practice)
These visual resources have effectively engaged my students and aided them in learning and transferring the Magic E/ Silent e rule. :)
