        Silhouette: Silent -e-

        In this clip, Hector and Lisa brainstorm one syllable, short vowel words, and then add a silent e to the end. The silent e transforms the meaning of the word, and the short vowel sound into a long vowel sound. For example, "not" becomes "note," and "cap" becomes "cape."
