Decodable — The Math Problem

Use this decodable text to give students practice reading multisyllable words with magic 'e' (also known as silent 'e') and long 'a', like frustrate and escape. In this phonics pattern, there is an 'a', consonant, and final 'e'. The 'e' is silent and the vowel sound 'a' is long.
