Why is that final <e> there? Students often do not know the various reasons for a final, single, nonsyllabic ("silent") <e>. When they learn there are more reasons besides a "long vowel," they will be able to self-check their spelling, understanding the reasons for the spelling. When they can explain their reasoning, it becomes knowledge they can apply over and over again independently.
