Does anyone have a cute poem, which illustrates the silent e or CVCe combination?
Thanks,
T-M

These ideas that we have used. They are not my ideas, but gathered here and there.
Color Changer Marker Idea
Use color changer markers to write words. Have children
trace over the vowel and the magic e with the white marker
to change the color of the vowel and the e, which also
changes the sound of the vowel.
Flashlight Idea
Have children shine a small flashlight (pen light kind) on
the magic e and command the vowel to say its name.
Flip Card Practice Write the word "fine" on a sentence
strip and fold back the e. Hold up the word and have the
children read the word fin and then expose the e and have
the children read the word "fine." Stories to explain magic e
Story I made up:
Draw stick figure people with a different vowel written on
each person's shirt. Also draw a stick figure without a
shirt.Explain that the vowel children were playing on the
playground one day and another friend came along and asked
to play. The vowels were very cliquey and did not allow the
new friend to play. The new friend turned into a mean witch
and cast a spell on the vowels so that they could no longer
say their names unless the magic e is present.
Recipe For Reading Story :
"Each student is given or makes a "magic wand," on which the
letter e is pasted. Wands may be contructed in class, of
wooden sticks and construction paper, or similar convenient
materials, or may be prepared ahead of time by the teacher.
If available, lollipops or other "treats" may be
substituted. Students are taught a trick that can make the
vowel "say its name" in the words they read. The magic e on
the magic wand will change a small pin into a great big
pine, a kit into a kite, will make your pal pale, and ,
instead of a little bit of candy, you may have a great big
bite."
Magic E Magician Story
Tell the class a special visitor is coming. Dress up in a
magic hat, a cape, carrying a wand (you can have another
teacher do this, or even a student). This person is Magic
E. Tell the students that he does magic tricks. You will
need some volunteers to hold up letters to blend a word.
Choose words that will change from a short vowel to a long
vowel with a Magic E; example cap/cape or rat/rate. Have
three volunteers, each holding 1 letter. Have the class
blend the word. Magic E comes to perform his magic trick,
he sprinkles his magic dust on the vowel. Now the vowel says its own name (long vowel sound).
In exchange for his magic trick, Magic E says nothing, he is
quiet. Magic E will hold his magic wand (with an e on it)
at the end of the word. Now have the class blend the new
word. Spell several words, have children volunteering to
hold letters and be Magic E.

Magic e poem

I don't remember where I found this poem, but I think it goes like this:

I hand around the ends of words,
and never make a peep.
But oh the magic I perform,
As over one consonant I leap,
To make the long vowel speak.

I hang around the ends of words,
so silently I sneak.
But oh the magic I perform,
To make the long vowel speak!

I hang around the end of words
And I am not to blame
Just ‘cause I like to pinch the vowel
and make him say his name.


Thanks for the inspiration!

I always tell the kids that the first vowel does the talking and the second vowel does the walking.

"Mighty e"

Here's a jingle that goes to the tune of "For he's a jolly good fellow:"

I teach almost exclusively second language learners so it is a useful excercise when they repeat the long vowel sound in the word:

The e jumps over the consonant,
The e jumps over the consonant,
The e jumps over the consonant,
To let the vowel say its name.

To be word specific, for example, "game:"

The e jumps over the m
The e jumps over the m
The e jumps over the m
To let the a say its name.
To let the a say its name
(/a/ /a/!)
To let the a say its name
(/a/ /a/!)
The e jumps over the m
To let the a say its name.
