 Language Arts/Phonics This lesson will help students recognize and respond to the sound of the short "e" sound. To practice blending, segmenting and building short e words.
 Determine the pronunciation and meaning of words by using phonics (matching letters and combinations of letter with sounds), graphs, pictures, and context as well as knowledge of roots, prefixes and suffixes.
 1. Students will be able to recognize the uppercase and lowercase letter "e". 2. Students will be able to recognize and respond to the sound of the letter "e" at the beginning of a word. 3. Students will be able to say the "e" sound.
 - alphabet chart - flash cards - egg - pan
 Write the letter "e" on the board. Explain that the letter "e" makes different sounds, but that in this lesson students will be learning the short /e/ sound. Storyline: Egg Cracking
 Demonstrate the sound of cracking the eggs open on side of pan saying e e e e e egg. Action: Students pretend to hold egg in one hand and tap it against the pan saying e e e, then use both hands to open egg shell and say e.
 1. Hands out short e word cards and non-short e word cards. Have students sort the words by putting short e cards in on pile and non-short e cards in another pile. 2. Give students cards with short e and other letters they have studied and have them search for things in the room whose names have the shound in them. Give them time to share their findings. Help them to write the word for the object on the board for them to underline the e. 3. Play phonics bingo by making bingo cards with letters that children have been taught up to this time (s, n, p, t, a, i, c, k, e). Each card should consist a three-by-three grid using a total of nine sounds. Use picture cards, or say words with initial, final, or medial sounds that correspond to the letters you have used on the bingo cards.
 Activity 2 A list of vocabularies which contains short e word and non-short e words (use * to replace the first letter of the word, e.g. *gg) will be provided to JQ and those pupils with lower leaning pace. Through listening to teacher's reading, pupils in this group need to circle those words start from letter "e".
