Daily(ish) Decodable: Adding an "r" to Magic E words

Today we're going to work on adding an "r" at the end of Magic E words. These can be tricky, so remind your child that the Magic E still makes the vowel say its name.

Read It

In honor of International Waffle Day, have your child read the passage below.

Waffle Day


It's Waffle Day!


A waffle is sort of like a pancake. It is made from flour, milk, eggs, and butter. It often has sugar as well.


Instead of cooking them in a pan, you cook waffles in a waffle maker.


Waffle makers come in all shapes and sizes. The normal ones are round or square, but there are ones that look like Mickey Mouse or cars or flowers or animals.


You can put chocolate chips and whipped cream on waffles… or you can just eat them plain.


What would you put on a waffle? 


Explain It

Now have your child answer a couple questions about the story:

  1. What day is it today?

  2. Based on what you learned in the story, how are waffles made?
