Silent E helps children learn to recognize and spell words with c-v-c-e (consonant-vowel-consonant-silent e) patterns. By comparing words before and after adding a finale e, children see how the sound of the middle vowel changes from short to long. By following the Lit Kids'
sign painting adventures, readers can begin to predict the complete word under the covered portion of the sign by applying the silent e rule. Once the children have become familiar with the short and long vowel words in this song, they can use the instrumental track to substitute other words that change when a silent e is added. Examples: mad/made, slid/slide, not/note, cub/cube. Take a look inside the book and listen to the song
