Family Fun – Lesson 1

I can change vowel sounds in words by adding final e.

Objective: To change vowel sounds in words by adding the final e. (RF.K.3)

Materials: scribble slate, magic wand.

Procedures: Ask your child to spell “hop” on the scribble slate Tell her to place the “magic e wand” at the end of the word. Explain that this word no longer says “hop” but by adding the “magic” e at the end of the word, the word has changed to “hope”. When there is a final e, the vowel says its real name. So the ŏ sound now says ō. Lift the plastic sleeve to erase the word. Then continue with different cvc words, adding the final e.

Conclusion: Give your child five words to spell on lined paper that have” long o” and end with letter e.
