POWERPOINT OF COMMON EXCEPTION WORDS FLASHCARDS FOR YEAR 2

POWERPOINT OF COMMON EXCEPTION WORDS FLASHCARDS FOR YEAR 2

A fun PowerPoint version of flashcards of all the Year 2 Common Exception words. Each word is on its own slide, which has the ‘grow and turn’ entrance animation. There is a ‘shape’ transition between each word. The words are in alphabetical order, but this can be edited easily. The presentation can be used for a variety of activities, e.g. As conventional flashcards – display and say the words as a class, or make it more competitive by using a quiz format and give points for the first team to say or write each word correctly. Who can be the first to say or write the word before it fully appears? Four or five lines of children. Only the front child can answer. The first one to answer goes to the back of the line. First line to get back to the beginning wins. Who can be the first to say or write the full version of the word before it fully appears? Memory test: select a small number of slides and display them for a few seconds each. Who can remember all the words (verbally, in writing, correctly spelt etc.) Who can be the first to write a sentence with the displayed word in it – specify rules (e.g. more than 8 words; fewer than 8 words; at least one adjective; at least one conjunction etc. etc.)

Build a Sentence - unifix sentence blocks template

Build a Sentence - unifix sentence blocks template

I designed this for our more abled Nursery children, but it would work for Reception age too. It is set into 3 levels. The Red level is for them to independently find words on the sentence maker blocks to make the sentence to match the pictures. The Orange level requires them to find some of the CVC words. The Green Level is a reading task of matching the words to build the sentence. There is the opportunity on all sheets for them to write the sentence once they have build it. it is more proof of concept rather than a finished resource. But feel free to use and modify if it is useful.

A Year of Spellng Centers

A Year of Spellng Centers

Struggle to get your students to learn their spelling words? Tired of the frequent refrain of “I’m bored” whenever you assign spelling work? No more! With this package, the variety and hands-on approach with help any student master their weekly words. This package includes 21 printable activities and 39 hands-on activities that can easily be done with common items that are likely already around your house or classroom. In my grade 1 class, we run these activities for approximately 3 weeks. Some are repeated more often according to student preferences and needs. There are 4 centers per week because of the spelling test on Friday and the frequency of 4 days weeks. These centers take about 20 minutes each day to complete and are great to pair with silent and shared reading to fill an entire period (40 minutes). Further, these centers allow me to work with individuals while the group is doing something meaningful and useful. This package includes all the printable centers in both .doc (editable) and pdf (font protected) format. It also contains a list of all 60 centers.
