This product was developed based on reading research that has found that students need phonological awareness skills developed to the advanced level to become fluent readers. The advanced level is the ability to manipulate sounds such as deleting, substituting, or reversing phonemes in words. These worksheets were designed to give students the opportunity to practice manipulating phonemes with the vowel-consonant-e spelling pattern.
The first half of each worksheet provides practice in manipulating phonemes. Students read the given word and then substitute the letter that has a box around it with one of the 3 letter choices to make a new word. Students will write the new word on the subsequent line where a letter from the new word will have a box around it. The student repeats the process until all the available lines are filled. (Note: letters at the top of the worksheet are only used once on that worksheet.)
The second half provides additional practice reading words with a vowel-consonant-e syllable. Students read the sentence and decides if that sentence is something that could be true. If it is, they put a check mark in the yes box, if not, then they check the no box.
