Phonetic sounds can be tricky sometimes, especially as the same sounds can actually turn out not sounding the same when found in two different words. For example, the /e/ sound found in words like ‘egg’ is not the same as the silent /e/ sound found at the end of words like ‘slime’. Ask your students if they can give you some more examples of words that have this silent /e/ sound. Read the words in this worksheet aloud together with your little ones, and ask them to check the words that have a silent /e/.
Learning when to use Silent E at the end of words is tricky for young readers, particularly those who use their sounds for decoding. This fun and friendly worksheet addresses several words that look the same but for the Silent E, and helps them practice discriminating visually while choosing the correct word for sentence blanks. They’ll be able to check off the correct word, while visually familiarizing the differences in closed syllables and words that need the E at the end.
