This game breathes fun into the sorting of words ending in a final silent e with the question of whether the e is making the vowel say its name as in the horse, Blake’s name or whether the e is part of an l-blend syllable where you just hear the consonants as in Fiddle’s name. The e is there to get the word to follow the rule that every syllable needs a vowel.
