Get these 3 printable Magic Wand worksheets for students to better understand and practice Silent E. Students will cut out the letter E magic wand, then explore its power to change the middle vowel sound in words!
🪄 Why We Love It
In my classroom, I always talk about the Silent E being magical, because it has the power to make the vowel say its name!
And there’s no better way to reinforce that than this exercise, featuring 3 free magic wand worksheets for Silent E practice. Students get their very own letter E magic wand to change words right before their eyes!
Using the magic wand, words completely change, both in the way they sound and their meaning.
Magic E Practice Examples:
- kit → kite
- cop → cope
- bit → bite
- tap → tape
✨ Using the Worksheets
- Cut out the mini magic wand. If your students want to have a little extra fun, they can color it first!
- Read the first word on the list.
- Place the magic wand at the end of the word, then read it again.
- Repeat until you’ve changed every word on the worksheet.
Tips & Info
- Really exaggerate and point out the way the middle vowel changes sounds from short to long once the magic happens.
- Allow kids to do this activity in front of other students! It builds confidence, it’s great practice, and it’s so fun!
- Years ago I found a magician’s top hat. 🎩 I pull it out when using these printables and everyone wants a turn reading aloud as they act as a real magician!
