Silent e is found at the end of a word. It remains silent but it makes the other vowel say its name. E.g. pin becomes pine. Pin has a short vowel i sound and pine has a long vowel sound. The Bossy E at the end of the word ‘pine’ has forced short a to change its sound to long i. Silent E remains silent. I will be sharing worksheets that focus on the silent e.
The above Bossy E anchor chart can be used as a wall display. It shows how adding Magic E changes the word. Pin becomes pine, rid becomes ride and rip becomes ripe.
Read the silent E words with ‘long i’ in the above words list and highlight the i and e.
