Young learners practice reading and writing words that make the long e sound in this lesson plan I See Long E! Designed with first graders in mind, this lesson teaches children to recognize the various letter combinations that lend themselves to the long e sound: -ee, -ea, and -y. Through word sorts, word searches, and other word family activities, young readers will have plenty of opportunities to practice the letter-sound relationships that will help them differentiate between long and short E when they encounter them in their reading.
