EA – Long E – Leap Phonics Package
This phonics intervention package targets the long vowel E pattern spelled as "ee". With a collection of multisensory activities, this phonics resource is compatible with an Orton Gillingham approach to teaching reading. It is designed for teaching in individual, group, or whole class English language arts settings.
Read Aloud Passage
It includes a read aloud passage where students use their phonological awareness to detect the targeted sound.
Brainstorming and Keyword
Activities also include prompts for brainstorming other words with the /ee/ sound and to select a mnemonic device or visual to increase their phonological memory of the sound.
There is a guided reading section of word lists that teachers can use to model and scaffold decoding words with the long e sound and EE spelling.
Phonological Awareness Tasks
As well, teachers are provided with scripts for phonological awareness tasks including manipulation and substitution of sounds and phonological memory.
An EE spelling list is provided where students are prompted to visualize the spelling of common EE words to help with recall. One focus word, three, is used in a repeated spelling activity to increase recall of this keyword. As well, a targeted sound building activity focuses on 9 EE words, green, sleep, speed, been, three, keep, free, see, and wheel.
Multisyllabic Word List
In order to challenge students to apply word attack or decoding strategies, a multisyllabic EE word list is provided.
Visual Spatial Relations
A word shape activity with EE words asks students to match the visual shape of the word to the outline, increasing their spelling recall.
In order to ensure students are attending to the meaning of what they are reading, sentences with true and false options are included.
To connect student's knowledge of letter-sound correspondence, one activity asks them to brainstorm other ways that they can represent the long E sound. Comprehensive answers are provided!
Reading studies continuously support repeated reading as a powerful tool to increase students reading fluency. As a result, a reading passage is included for students to practice their reading fluency on their own and with the support of a teacher. In addition, "one-breath" word lists of EE words is provided for students to practice their recall speed of EE words.
Letter Sound Correspondence
A building activity where students use a matrix of sounds, focusing on the long vowel EE pattern, asks students to create both real and nonsense EE words.
A word search for EE words is included for students to work independently on to increase their visual discrimination skills.
A hidden EE word search is included to help students develop their figure group visual perceptual skills.
To exercise students' form constancy skills, a matching activity of EE words in provided.
A final reading game using the sequence format has students read from a large bank of EE words as they challenge a partner.
