Phonics for English Year 2

Hi there,

These are the phonics word cards for year 2 pupils. Most of the words are taken from the textbook while a few of  them were add to complete the list.

These babies are printable and you could cut them out and laminate them nicely. So you could use them over and over again.

 

If you find any mistakes, feel free to add comment or e-mail me.

With these printable phonics you could actually carry a lot of games and activities such as Bang Games, Musical Box and so much more.

There is also blank cards for you to insert your own words. Good luck and hope you enjoy this little gift.

 

Outer Space Classroom

Another post from me tonight….This is my decoration for my classroom. The theme is Outer Space… we painted the class midnight blue and add skirting for the desks.  Also added a lot of stars too. We have birthday board, attendance board, duty chart, reading conner and a simple library. 

For the birthday conner, I printed out the boy and girl astronauts, coloured and then laminated them (I could recycle these for another year). Then I add big straws to each of the astro boy and girl….add pencil with the pupils’ birthday. The pupils could get the pencil on their birthday….

And finally the attendance chart.. How does these super cute rockets function? The pupils who come everyday to school will get a sticker, 1 sticker for 1 full month … so they could paste it on their rocket… Pupils who collect the most crescents will receive award a the end of the year… 100% attendance….

Rainbow Classroom Theme

Every end of the year I will squeeze out as many ideas as possible to decorate my class and that is the best that I like about being a class teacher. I get a lot ideas from Pinterest…(I love pinning so much)….And these year my classroom theme is rainbow…

Here are a few photos that I managed to snap during the project. However, it is not done yet, so there are many more things to do. I will update this post once the project is completed.

I’ve been hunting the rainbow items from the bookstore to the wedding shops. From online to the sewing store…searching here and there and check out what I managed to collect. Nice right?
