Boo and I recently had a Silent E day! I introduced her to this crazy letter and we started our learning adventure with a hunt for CVC and CVCV words. This was also the perfect time to introduce the sight word “like”.
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.
We recently discovered how fun making words can be with a Magna Doodle! All you need is a Magna Doodle and magnets shaped like the letters! A fun way to teach reading! 🙂
I haven’t made one of these for awhile. It was SO nice to spend just a few
minutes hours making a book for my daughter to practice her three letter words! The process took longer than I had thought- I wanted there to be just the right number of pages for the beginning, middle, and ending letters. Which meant pulling apart the blank flip book (I bought awhile ago from Bare Books) and arranging pages. Then I applied stickers which I promptly ripped off because they were not perfect. And then I started coloring the vowel pages yellow, which I did NOT like, which meant more pulling apart and rearranging of the book….
All for the final result, which I love.
Sure, the little pages are not all the same length, but I am pretty impressed with the outcome. We have had fun reading words with this little flip book, especially the silly words like mab and jum.
It took more time than I thought, but I love making books and instilling the love of reading to my little girl. 🙂
