If your student is struggling with knowing how to correctly read words like cap vs. cape, kit vs. kite, and tub vs. tube, then this video is for you. Today’s video will teach the silent e or sneaky e phonics rule so that your student’s short and long vowel confusion will be over and his or her reading skills will improve. The silent e or sneaky e phonics rule states that the e at the end of a word does not make a sound, meaning it’s silent, but it sneaks and makes the first vowel in the word say its own name, meaning it changes that vowel’s sound from short to long vowel sound.
