|When you add an e to the end of some words, the vowel changes from a short vowel sound to long vowel sound. The e in the end would be silent.|
Example: rip + e = ripe.
Directions: Write the first word in each question and then add an e to the end of the word. Say the first and the new word aloud and use them in sentences. As a homework, read a book and find as many 'silent e' words as you can.
