TEACHING NOTES

1 This group of exercises focusses on rules particular to the English spelling system. There are a number of vowel digraphs covered here, and it is worth spending extra time with magic 'e' (some people prefer the terms 'modifying', or 'lengthening'). If learners are taught from the outset that vowels all have more than one sound, it is not difficult for them to understand the difference between a 'short' and a 'long' vowel.

2 It is also worth teaching the other sort of magic worked by the letter 'e': that of softening 'c' and 'g'. I have given this a separate section in these exercises. (Note that 'i' is also a softening vowel. There are plenty of examples when the suffix -ing is added to a word: racing, staging)
