Oh my poor students get so tripped on these words and whether they should use the short vowel sound or the long vowel sound. To help them get more practice with these types of words and reinforce the CVCe rule, I made The Silent E in Space game. It contains all sorts of words like cap and cape, so students have to really look at the word and concentrate.
Not to mention......who doesn't love a good game to play? Click on the picture below to purchase your own copy of The Silent E in Space.
