Here’s another letter E vowel sound worksheet.
Short vowel sounds are the more trickier letter sounds to identify. But it’s an essential skill to master, especially since every word has at least one vowel.
The short E sound is also commonly heard in the R-controlled vowel sound ER.
This 1st grade phonics worksheet will give kids some extra practice recognizing the short E sound in a word.
The letter E worksheet has 12 images. For each picture, children will need to identify which syllable or syllables in each word contain a short letter E sound.
For example: BAS KET BALL
After sounding the word out, kids will hear a short E sound in the 2nd or middle syllable.
There are 3 boxes below the image of the basketball, each representing a syllable. In this example, kids would put an X in the second box.
Kids might find it helpful to lightly clap while saying each syllable.
