3 Magic pages of Phonic Fun with i_e: worksheet, story and key (#23)
The story is different to most as it is factual.
Yesterday my computer broke, but luckily I could have it repaired though the technician said I need a new one.
I plan to focus five worksheets on magic e and this is the third one. Probably you know that magic e, although silent, is not the same as a silent e because it has the power to change the preceding vowel sound.
See my account for other worksheets in this series.
The stories are classified as "decodable", but unlike many so called decodable stories these have over 90 percent decodable text as opposed to the 40- 60 percent found in most "phonic readers" I mix sentence fragments with grammatically correct sentences as fragments are often easier for beginners to understand.
If you wish to edit the "word bank" out, open the document, copy the file, paste into MSPaint and erase the word bank. You can edit sentences in a similar way using publishing software, it΄s really easy once you know how.
There will be many worksheets in the series. Children will enjoy the puzzles which will help them understand the stories better.The accompanying stories are great for young learners especially when read aloud as the phonically regular text is easy to read and gives the child a sense of fluency and confidence. I really appreciate any feedback I receive. I have tried to strike a good balance between decoding and comprehension and hope that I have succeeded.
