Lesson 6 - Making Music
Learn r controlled vowels and the "magic e" spelling pattern.
In lesson six, you'll learn the new sounds that a vowel + the letter R can make. And you will see that the letter E can make a vowel say its own letter name.
First, listen carefully to the new sounds of a vowel + plus letter R comes after a vowel. (Repeat words)
Practice saying these sounds often so you learn to say them correctly.
Now let's look at the vowel + consonant + E spelling rule. This rule can be confusing, but it's fun and easy. Watch closely. You know that letters together can make new sounds. Now you will see that letters apart can make new sounds, too. With the vowel + consonant + E spelling pattern, the vowel says its own name and the E becomes silent. Because the E does not touch the vowel, we call this rule "magic e." Let's look at some examples. (Repeat words)

If the letters C or G comes before the final E, then C and G make their soft sounds. (Repeat words)
Remember that spelling rules are not perfect. Sometimes "magic e" words do not follow this pattern. Glove, love, give and have are common exceptions.
Excellent work! You're really moving along now! In the next lesson, we'll begin blending vowels to make long vowel sounds.
