CVCe words are words that consist of a consonant, vowel, consonant, and then the ending letter “e”. The E in these words is silent, but the vowel that is between the two consonant letters becomes a long vowel. The “e” makes the vowel say its name.

These types of words can be tricky for early readers because they want to read the vowel as a short sound before they notice the “e” at the end of the word and realize they should change the sound to a long vowel.
