I found these ADORABLE printables from Tales of a Teacherista. We printed them on card stock but instead of using the cutout letter e to turn those short vowels into long vowels- I decided we should make our own e.
I scrambled around our kitchen looking for something to use when I saw our Peach Rings (we have way too much candy on hand at our house). They worked PERFECTLY.
To make the lowercase letter e, you simply break the circle apart and bring the top loose end inside to make the loop. Super easy!
Boo had a riot making her own sugar “e”s, and the best part was that after she read a list of words with her candy e she got to eat it! An educational tool and a treat! This also helped her with writing the lowercase letter e.
