My kiddos are doing pretty well with spotting magic e in a word and sounding out the word. We've done lots of sorting, sounding out & drawing both CVC and CVCe words. Click the picture above to receive a free copy of this sorting activity.
Here's the "bummer" part of the CVCe story....when I went to DIBEL my students this week some of them sounded out the nonsense words and put LONG vowels in the middle! GRRRRR!!!! Note to self: do not introduce magic e until AFTER end of year testing!
8 more days....cha cha cha!!!
