Silent e words are tricky to read and spell. Try this free printable to help your child master them!
Are you ready to teach your students how to make and read silent e words?
Each of these cards has a short vowel word for students to read first.
By printing the word endings and attaching craft sticks, your child has two “magic wands” that can change those short vowel words into something new. The “ke” wand is for words that end with “ck.”
If storage is an issue for you, you can simply print the cards and punch holes in the pages. Store them in a 3-ring binder.
Your child can simply move the wand down the page, switching to the “ke” wand as needed.

Thank you very much.
Good Morning! I am a kindergarten teacher looking for fun ways to help my kiddos at home. I was wondering if I have permission to reproduce some of your silent e activities to send home to help parents, help their kiddos? If you would rather I not, I perfectly understand.

Anna, Thanks a lot . I can usefully use this resources to my phonics beginners who can not read well from short vowel to long vowel. Sometimes I felt tired to teach at this level ….
I’m glad you can use these, Grace!
I am teaching my 5 year old that the ‘e’ is bossy and tells the other vowel to ‘Say your name, not your sound!’ It doesn’t always work but in the majority of cases it helps him to work the work out. Love your cards which give his hands something to do while he is reading.
I love that, Heidi! It’s a great way to teach that tricky silent e.
