In this webinar, we will learn to teach students how to use the letter <e> at the end of words.

When <e> comes at the end of a word in English, it is not heard. It is silent. We used to pronounce <e> at the ends of words in some cases. In other cases it was simply used as a marker, either to cancel plurals or to change pronunciation of preceding graphemes. This lesson is about these signals. They are called the Jobs of Final Silent E.

There are many names for the letter E at the end of words. Some call it ‘Bossy E’, others call it ‘Magic E’ and so on. Our complete name for it is Final Silent E.
