Reading “Rules”

Some Words of Wisdom as I’m studying for grad class (From Scanlon, et al’s text Early Intervention in Reading Difficulties)

* The Silent e Rule only words about 50% of the time, it isn’t really a rule.  Better may be- the final e might be a clue as to what the other vowel says

* When two vowels goes walking the first one does the talking- this doesn’t work all of the time either.  Maybe think about using “When two vowels are together in a word, usually only one vowel sound is heard”  or “When two vowels go walking, somebody says something”
