Remind your students how words are transformed by the magic e with this poster and worksheet set.
🪄 The Amazing Magic E Can Transform Short Vowels Into Long Vowels!
Project this educational poster on the screen during your phonics lessons when introducing the “magic e” (also referred to as a split long vowel digraph) to your students.
The students will learn that when the magic e appears at the end of the word, it is silent. It uses its magic to change the short vowel sound in the middle of the word to a long vowel sound. Then –Wallah! – it makes a new word! 🪄
The examples used on the poster include:
- kit – kite
- can – cane
- pet – Pete
- glob – globe
- cub – cube
Once you have reviewed the content of the poster, why not challenge your students to brainstorm other words that follow the magic e rule?
Need an even bigger jump than that? Why not challenge them to write sentences including at least one of the magic e words displayed on the screen?
✨ Bonus Worksheet Inside!
In addition to the full-color poster, a black-and-white worksheet version is also included in the download. This will allow your students to practice their newfound skills by filling in the blank spaces at the end of each word!
