  • PowerPointPhonicsLesson05PowerPoint
  • A projector, screen, laptop computer, extension cord and Microsoft Office's PowerPoint (Go to the class early. Use the 10 minute break in between classes to set up your equipment. Have the students move their desks back so the projector makes a large enough picture for everyone to see.  Be sure to test your setup before class before attempting to do during class. Also, having a backup lesson is a good idea as technology can be unpredictable. I've never had any problems, but it is important to have safeguards.)



  1. Go to class 10 minutes early, set up and start the show.
  2. You or your JTE should explain the meaning of magic. Have your JTE read the Japanese explaination of magic "e". Show the first example of can changing to cane and have the students repeat cane after you. Remind them that this is the long a-sound.
  3. The next slides should be stopped when the word recieves the e but before the picture comes. See if your students can read the word. Call on them by name if you can. As the vowel sounds change be sure to do the first example of each vowel without asking the students to read it. After all of the slides you may want to test their reading by asking them to read words with magic "e" from their book like fine and nice.
  4. It is a very good idea to practice presenting this to yourself once before you do it live. 


  • Know your equipment and have a spare lesson handy in case of malfunction.  There are plenty of introductory lessons on Englipedia that would only require the printing of worksheets for one class. Carry these with you to every lesson that uses your computer and projector in just in case. I've never had to use it but I always have it.
