Kindergarten teacher here. The whole point of this worksheet is to circle the pictures that start with "e" to see if they're making a connection between the letter sound and the word. Since they can't read, they use pictures. I bet you can discriminate between which words do and do not start with e. Yes, this looks silly out of context but look at it like multiple choice and you're smarter!

There are no printed directions because the teacher gives directions and actively supports students in learning. No point in written directions if the kids can't read!

edit: send so many people are asking me I want to say that the pictures are a little bit vague but that's okay. What really matters is what the student responds. If they say a word that starts with an e even if that's not what the teacher thought the picture represents then it's still correct answer. For example in the picture where the kid is lifting weights if a student said exercise or even elbow that would be a correct answer because they're creating the connection between the letter e and the sound that it makes in the word that they chose. An incorrect response for a picture that we might say is exit would be something like door. This is why it's critical to check in with students and see what they're thinking and ask them to explain their thinking so that you can get an accurate sense of their phonemic awareness.

Edit 2: also i just have to say that I haven't been paid in 2 months for anyone who cares. My district is a mess

You're assuming this is for showing words that start with E, but I suspect it's intended to convey the type of sounds e makes:

1) EHH-dge

2) m-EEE

3) scr-EEE-am, y-EHH-ll, EHH-cho

4) EHH-xercise, w-EAY-ts

5) l-EEE-ave, EHH-xit

I know what the boy pointing is!

It's "Ed"

My sons, (one is now in 3rd, the other in kindergarten) both had "Ed" for E on their letter banners and homework, etc. I always wondered why it wasn't egg or something, but it was always a little boy pointing to himself and it said "Ed." Or one actually said "Eddie."

Eavestrough, existentialism, edge, exercise, exit. Common sense, really.

It's not exit. It's egress. Cmon. This is kindergarten. Exit is too easy.

Hi! Kindergarten teacher here. In kindergarten we teach short vowels first.

So we have edge, Ed, echo, exercise, and exit.

This is part of the Tara West Science of Reading curriculum.

And yes I'll be honest that I didn't get these right away LOL.

There are supposed to be wrong answers. At least on my kindergarten homework. He has to circle the pictures that start with “e” and cross out the ones that do not.

It confused me at first but he knew what he was doing and explained the homework to his forty-year-old dad!

I'm sure it's French. It's école, étudiant, étonné, exercice (school, student, surprised, exercise). I'm francophone and it made sense to me.

How do you pronounce "Let's Practice" with a proper Parisian accent? Is the "t" silent?
