Word family using short 'e'

Hello everyone! We are introducing the concept of Word Families to the kids again! Previously, we have introduced word families with short ‘A’. Today, we are using short ‘E’. What’s good about word families? Well, it helps preschool children to understand the elements of words and sounding them out. My boy had great fun learning and “playing” with it. 🙂

Here, teaching him words that ends with ‘en’, the sound of ‘en’ and the sound of the first letter of each word. Then we blend the letter sounds together to read the word.

Next, we move on to reading and how each word can form into sentences.

Not forgetting the hands on fun for him. Too much writing sometimes bores him. Having some hands on fun is good and I can use the chance to “test” him 😉 This is good for learning blending too!

The next day, we have a quick review on how much he remembers. I showed him the pic using the hen and eggs theme and he will use the eggs to spell out the word. Amazingly he remembers everything!

The little one loves to play with the “eggs”. We had fun learning letters with it.
