Silent e

Author: Amanda Haddad

Learn about Silent e, its effect on words, and how to code and read words with Silent e.

You will work in a group of 5, sharing an iPad to view the 3 videos on the screen below.

Then it will be center time. One center will have 5 iPads, 1 for each person.

Click on the blue link, write the words one at a time on your white board and follow the steps you saw in the video to decode the silent e words. Do this, one at a time, with as many of the words as you can.

When finished, practice reading the words with a partner, or group of 3.

Answer the quiz questions and complete the WSQ, with my guidance at my checkpoint.
