Silent Final < e >


Or, more accurately, SINGLE, FINAL, NON-SYLLABIC <e>.
I know it’s a mouthful, but I feel it’s important we understand exactly what this means, and why this is a more accurate term. This understanding is especially critical when it comes to suffixing conventions.
While I’ve included eleven ‘jobs’ in this resource, there are definitely others. I encourage you and your kids to always be on the lookout for more instances where the single, final, non-syllabic <e> is signalling something in a word. And it won’t take your kids long to notice that many times, the <e> signals more than one thing. For example, in the word ‘page’, the <e> is signalling a long vowel AND a soft <g>.
