We have spent a year with our first graders working through CVC words and learning blends and diagraphs. Now we are shifting gears and focusing on long vowels.  This switch can be quite challenging. Our little readers are getting really good and reading those short vowels, and then we change it on them. Now they have to know that each vowel makes two sounds! And to make it even harder they have to learn when to use a short vowel versus a long vowel.

So today, I have a simple worksheet that will help them to focus on when to use a short vowel vs the long vowel.

There are many rules for making a vowel a long vowel, or a vowel that says its name. One of those ways to make a long vowel is to add an e to the end of a CVC word or a CCVE word. You may have heard of the Bossy E or silent e, and that is what I use to teach my kiddos about the silent e.

“Oh look, there is an e at the end of this word. What does that mean?”

“Bossy E”

Yes, and what does Bossy E say?”

“Say your name!”

The silent e at the end of the word, make the vowel say it’s name, or make the vowel a long vowel sound.

Silent e worksheets pdf

For example, let’s say I have the word rob. Because it is a CVC word the a is short. But if I were to add an “e” to the end of the word, I now have robe….as in a bath robe. The vowel now says its name, and the “e” at the end of the word is silent.

This works on so many words, and children need to learn that when an that “e” is added the vowel changes to a long vowel. And this is what this free silent e worksheets works on!
