Meet the Silent E Gang!

Hello Everyone!!
In January we will dive into reading, writing, and spelling long vowel words.  We will begin with "Open Vowel Words" That unit is included in my Happy New Year unit. After that we will work on using the infamous Silent E.  Last year we used the fun "Sneaky E" puppets and the kids looooved them.  This year I will introduce the Silent E Gang : Sneaky E, Sparkly E, and Magic E.  All are guaranteed to help kids stay engaged and have fun while learning about that important silent e on the ends of words.  I put together a little packet to keep me organized, and I can't wait to do all this with my kiddos!  I hope you will find them useful.  The packet includes, chants, paper bag puppet patterns, stick puppet patterns for each of the gang members, and about 28 pages of short vowel words, some conventional and some nonsense for kids to practice and write.
Here are a few pics of the unit.




Cut out and make stick puppets for "Add an E game included in unit.

Talk to you all soon!!
Joyfully!
