Reflection: Joy E is for Early Easter and Eating Eggs! - Section 4: Closing and Summarizing E


I have always found that my students can better understand topics when they truly connect to them.  Now, letter sounds are not something our students can really learn in a concrete manner, so it is important that we have them make connections to them! 

It may seem funny to connect the Martin Luther King, Jr. Egg-periment writing and early Easter concept to the letter E; however, students really jump in.  The more cross-curricular connections we can make, the more memorable the idea will be!  If my students can talk about Easter and also eat some eggs and that is what it takes to finalize the sounds of /e/ and /Ē/ for them, I don't mind to do those fun things at all!

  Why make so many different connections?
