Silent Magic - A "silent e" phonics sound game

Silent Magic is designed to reinforce the Silent E rule. In a fun, hands-on activity, students experience both orally and visually the “power” of the Silent E to change a short-vowel sound into a long-vowel sound. It can be used at centers for kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grades; ESL classes; and for tutoring students of all ages.

Silent Magic contains 7 sets of cards. Each set comes with a recording sheet. Every set contains 12 cards that will form six matches. Matches are formed by pairing a short-vowel word to a long-vowel word that has the same beginning letters with a Silent E on the end (such as cap/cape, kit/kite, mad/made, cut/cute).

The playing cards can be printed and laminated, or printed on light-weight card stock. Each of the seven sets of cards has a different border. The header of each recording sheet is color coordinated with the border so that you can easily identify the correct recording sheet.

Suggested uses for Silent Magic:

Matching Game
Silent Magic can be played as a simple matching game at Language Centers. Recording sheets help to reinforce the hands-on activity.

Memory/Match Game
Lay out the 12 cards upside down in rows and have students take turns turning over two cards at a time trying to find a match. Have students read the words as they turn over the cards to reinforce the short and long-vowel sounds.

Tutoring Tool
Silent Magic makes a great “fun break” during tutoring sessions. The game makes tutoring sessions a positive experience for students while still focusing on the phonics concepts of short-vowel sounds, long-vowel sounds and the Silent E rule.

Spelling Support
Use cards from one set, or pull cards from different sets to create a center for your spelling unit.

Happy Teaching :)
