Word List for Short /e/ Words
In this blog, I going to include a Word List for short /e/ words. Words with the short /e/ sound are practiced in Book 1 of English Reading and Spelling for the Spanish Speaker series.
Use this list to help your students develop fluency with the targeted speech sound. The following activities can help develop fluency.
- Students read the words and sentences from the list.
- The teacher or another person dictates five to ten words at a time. After each word is dictated, the student writes the word, reads the word and then spells the word out loud.
- The teacher or another person dictates one or two sentences at a time. After each sentence is dictated, the student writes the setence and then reads the sentence.
Having students read and write words and sentences every day from this list will develop fluency with the targeted speech sound.
These lists will be on our website under Teacher Resources then under Reading and Spelling.

This Word List supports lessons in English Reading and Spelling for the Spanish Speaker Book 1 which is part of Fisher Hill’s English Literacy Program for Spanish speakers. There are six levels in the program. To progress through the program, students need to do all the level one books first: English Reading and Spelling for the Spanish Speaker Book 1 then English Reading Comprehension for the Spanish Speaker Book 1, English Writing Composition for the Spanish Speaker Book 1 and finally English Vocabulary for the Spanish Speaker Book 1. After finishing the four workbooks in Level 1, then students can begin Level 2. Each level always begins with the Reading and Spelling for the Spanish Speaker workbook.
In my next blog, I will be talk about Word Chains. Word Chains provide practice with targeted speech sounds which will help with reading and writing fluency.
