The long vowel igh family including CEW and spelling rules

The long vowel igh family including CEW and spelling rules

Meet all the graphemes for KS1 that make the ‘igh’ sound. They’re the Green family and like to dress in green to reinforce their ‘ee’ sound. All the CEW for year 1 and year 2 with this phoneme in are included as well as spelling rules which apply from English appendix 1. The powerpoint is designed to be used across year groups depending on your phonics teaching. It contains at least a weeks worth of phonics teaching. Each character tells you about its grapheme and uses sounds spots to support reading and spelling. Once children are familiar with the family they can explore best bet rules and then apply their learning by using the dictated sentences also within the powerpoint. Two copies are included, one which uses my preferred font of Letterjoin and one with comic sans.

Year 2  Grammar English Writing TAF

Year 2 Grammar English Writing TAF

This is a fantastic Toolkit with all the Year 2 grammar features written on top. It is designed to be used as a boy friendly writing Toolkit. It can also be used as a display around the class. I like to give it to the children as a motivator when they have mastered one of the tools. They get it to keep and possibly share at the table - that means they are the master and other children will come to see them for advise when they are stuck. Great to move those reluctant boy writers and use it like a competition winning ticket- as we all know boys like challenges. Enjoy and please leave a comment if it has been useful in your classrooms. Suitable for the New English 2018 curriculum.
