Jobs of Silent 'e' - All 7 jobs

The letter E is an amazing letter. In fact, when it's at the end of a word, it does its work without making a sound. That's why it's called silent E and this 28 page lesson with activities gives you instruction and practice on seven jobs of silent E, including: Job 1- E makes vowels long Job 2- E makes ‘c’ and ‘g’ soft Job 3- E indicates non-meaningful ‘s’ Job 4- E makes ‘l’ a vowel/syllable Job 5- E is an historical leftover Job 6- E keeps ‘v’ and ‘u’ from ending a word Job 7- E makes ‘th’ voiced. Whoever knew that E did so much without even making a sound.
