Student version of "Making Words" with the silent e pattern. The hand pointer is used to help decode the word. They use the pointer, touch the e, reach over the consonant, and say, "Say your name, " then sound out the word. I coded the cards by their spelling pattern (ake, ine, etc.) with a different color of train, so the children can sort the cards if they get mixed up in the pocket chart. No more asking you what cards go where. Just say, "Sort the cards by their train colors and start building words."
