CADERS (Early Readers): Cage (for practicing silent e)


This 8-page story, Cage, practices the silent e rule. It is appropriate for mid-first grade (or any time a child is practicing the silent e). It also practices digraphs (ch, sh, th, wh) and blends (br, st, cr, etc).

(Refer to last year's November 14th posting for description of what CADERS readers -- once called Berenson Books -- are all about.)

Directions for creating this 8-page booklet:
1. Click on story title above, then on link that opens under it.
2. Run off story that opens. (If your printer prints double-sided, print only on one side.)
3. Take every other page and turn it upside down. All pages will still face upwards, but every other one will be upside down.
4. Run in copier, double-sided.
5. Fold in middle. Result is 8-page booklet, using only two sheets of paper.
6. If making more than one copy, set copier to "sort."
