If you’re working on that tricky silent e, these games are a great way to practice reading a-e words.
A few days ago I shared my fold and read cards for a-e words. You know, words like tape, shake, and cape. I created those to help my kindergartner understand how silent e (sometimes called “magic e”) changes the sound of the vowel.
They worked even better than I’d hoped!
Today I’m sharing another set of freebies to help kids learning to read a-e words.
Before we played the new game, we reviewed a-e words by reading the fold and read cards I made the other day. I always insisted that he read the short a word first before folding over the e and reading the new word. He made a couple mistakes, but did great!
Next, I pulled out the new game. This is a simple follow the path reading game. Just roll the die, move ahead, and read the word. Take turns until one of you helps the bee find the flower.
He enjoyed it so much he actually asked to play again! So I pulled out the second version. You’ll find three versions in the download, and you can get all three in black and white too.
