Teaching Silent e

Although final e is silent, it usually has a job to do.
When a short word (or the last syllable of a longer word) ends in the pattern vowel-consonant-e, it usually makes the vowel sound long and says its alphabet name:
a = ay,
i = eye,
o = oh,
u = you.
The e remains silent.
But we have exceptions, for example, love, glove, above, have, come, some, none, oven, etc., have short vowel sounds.
