I've taught my students about silent e, adding the inflectional endings "-ing" and "-ed" to a word with a silent "e", and to double the last letter when it has a CVC pattern at the end before adding "-ing" or "-ed".
I called the silent "e" sneaky "e" because it sneaks in and makes the vowel say its name - and that it is silent.
The inflectional heroes "-ing" and "-ed" defeat sneaky "e" by getting rid of it and adding the "-ing" or "-ed".
The double it heroes come when it is a CVC pattern and the double it heroes double the last letter before adding "-ing" or "-ed"
Works really well especially for my lower students. Aligned with common core state standards.
