This is just a quick post to give you our last installment of free fold and read cards for silent e words!
This is just a small set, as there are very few short u words that can be changed into a new word by adding an e. Don’t worry – we also have free games and worksheets that reinforce all the other u-e words.
Simply print and cut out the strips. Have your child read the short vowel word.
Then he folds in the paper to meet the dotted line and reads the new word.
Even with the small set of words, this was an important activity. I wanted my Five to see that when you make u-e words, the u can make the sound /oo/ (as in tube) or the sound /yoo/ (as in cute). He grasped this more easily than I’d anticipated. 🙂
