Lesson Plan - Get It!
Listen to your parent or teacher say the word "head." What sound do you hear in the middle of the word?
You may have said the word "head" has the short e sound in the middle.
That is correct! In the previous Related Lesson, found in the right-hand sidebar, you learned about the short a and i sounds. In this lesson, you will practice listening to words and naming the short e and short o vowel sounds in the middle of the word.
Before you begin listening for sounds in words, you will review the sound the short e and short o make. Watch the videos from Turtle Diary below. Pay close attention to how your mouth makes the sounds. This will help you learn to hear the difference between the two sounds.

After watching the videos, look in the mirror and practice making the short e and short o sounds. Show your teacher or parent the difference in the two sounds.
Now that you watched the videos and practiced making the sounds in words, you are ready for more practice!
