Description

This is a very versatile set of Silent-E vs. Vowel-R Cards.

There are 9 one-syllable minimal word pairs such as star/stare. Use this for an introductory word sort to teach your students that Silent-E is stronger, and these syllables will be read with a long vowel sound. Also use for a quick Go Fish game, 18 cards.

There are 18 mostly multi-syllable words with Silent-E words using the doubling rule and Vowel-R words using the doubling rule. There are only 2 minimal pairs. But these words also require thought to read accurately when a student is first reading multi-syllable Silent-E and Vowel-R words: cured, whirred, adhered, preferred. Words which are not part of a minimal pair are marked with the number 2, so you know to ask for the same word to make pairs for games.

The Mighty-E “sticker” on the back of each card is an excellent visual reminder to the point of each activity.

Use the entire deck for combined one- and multi-syllable word sort, Go Fish, a variation on Old Maid called Pirate Dog, and a variation of a reading game I titled, “You’re the Pirate Now.”

Very flexible. Excellent repetition of concepts. Use as a learning break. Use at the end of a lesson. Send home for quick, fun, extra practice for kids who really struggle with retrieval.

Engaging repetition is an important key to learning, long-term memory, and retrieval.
