Silent e

Many of you know that Hubbard’s Cupboard has numerous FREE printable booklets. 
The collection of booklets for emergent readers has grown over the years and includes…
Sight Word Booklets
Word Family Booklets
CVC Booklets
and various booklets to correspond with holidays and picture books.

Are you ready for more?!  We now also have Silent e Booklets!

Just as with our other booklets, the Silent e Phonics Readers are available in both 8 1/2 by 11 colored teacher versions as well as black and white half page student versions.  There are four booklets (one booklet to focus on each of the four long vowels a, i, o, u) and three additional booklets to be used for review of all the CVCV words.  (We intentionally did not create a silent e booklet, as long e appearing as CVCV is rare.) Here is a sneak peak of one of the covers…

The Silent e Phonics Reader Booklets are available to download for FREE
over at the ‘Printable Booklets’ page at Hubbard’s Cupboard!

Of course, I couldn’t stop there!  I wanted to create a way for our emerging readers to have additional opportunities to detect, read, and spell those silent e words. 
Here is a sampling of some of these resources…

    Michelle, I love your website. So much great information and printouts. You Rock. I like that you are a Christian as evidenced by your work and Scripture quotes. One question I have is: are you aligned with Common Core (which we don’t like at our school). We are a Christian school, and I really like many of your great ideas and worksheets. And they are free — which is all the better. Many of our parents simply “hate” Common Core and their agenda, and I agree.

    Thank you and may God bless you and your family,

    • Hi! To answer your question…. I do not refer to the Common Core Standards as I create new materials. I try to focus on creating materials and resources that are developmentally appropriate (and incorporate a Biblical emphasis when applicable). The majority of resources that I have created and posted to Hubbard’s Cupboard, Joyful Heart Learning, and to my personal blog are ones that have either been used in my own class (when I taught previously – before Common Core) or in our own home (currently). They may meet some of the standards, but it is not intentional. I hope this explanation helps!
