Silent Final 'e' Collection
Once they have mastered reading our phonetic word materials: CVC words, words with consonant blends and multiple syllables, teaching kids to read words with the special rules of English can be introduced. This collection focuses on words that have silent final 'e' in them, where the 'e' at the end is silent and makes the vowel before it say its long sound.
Silent Final 'e' Flip Books and Word Cards
Silent Final "e" Flip Books
These are specially designed booklets that help demonstrate the role of silent final 'e' and the magic it can do to words to make the vowel say its long sound or name. These booklets have word couplets that illustrate the role of silent final 'e'. Your child can flip back and forth to see how the silent final 'e' magically changes the word's' short and long vowel pair such as "cub"/"cube" to help illustrate this principle.
Silent Final "e" Word Cards
These cards are designed with a word on the outside and a picture on the inside to discourage picture guessing before the word is correctly pronounced. After reading the word, the child can check his own work.
The sets are organized into vowel categories to help your child practice the silent final 'e' rule for each vowel. After your child can read them well by vowel, you can mix them up to provide another level of challenge and interest. Choose sets below or buy all seven for a discount!
