As I looked at my students who have difficult reading, final e was a stumbling block. Students knew the rule, but needed practice in applying it with a variety of words. I created a PowerPoint show to help readers conquer this skill. I created this presentation with a wide variety of final e words. The show shows words a slow speed and then gives children a short action break. It resumes at a faster speed and gives another action break several more times. The timed presentation moves automatically and takes about 6 minutes.
The detective theme appeals to children and makes the practice fun. The timed presentation can be student lead which allows teachers a few minutes to get set for the next activity while students are actively learning. Since this is a PowerPoint, it is possible to print out the presentation with 4, 6 or 9 slides on a sheet of paper. These cards can be used as flashcards.
Thank you to Creative Clips, 3 AM Teacher and hello fonts whose wonderful talents make this activity appeal to students!
