46 Dolch Sight Words for Second Grade

If you missed the 41 Dolch Sight Words for First Grade , you can download it HERE and the 52 Dolch Sight Words for Kindergarten, download it HERE.  Reading, repetition and tracing are the key learning tools I used for our daughters.  Use Letter Tiles to make it more interesting by letting your child form the sight words.





Print the flashcards on card stock, you can also laminate them to make it more durable, punch a hole in a corner and use a Book Ring.




This way you can always have it handy. You can easily throw it in your purse and while waiting for an appointment or waiting in line, your child can practice their sight words.


Here's a practice sheet for big kids. Unlike , the previous lower grade sight word worksheets that I had provided. This packet does not have tracing and matching game.To save money, print this sheet only once using  card stock and laminate. Using the flashcards printable, have your kid or student write the sight word and create a sentence. This is also a great way to practice sentence building.

Clean Eating Sweet and Sour Tofu

These past weeks had been a fun and busy week for us. We did a summer blast ( a summer camp from our church), volunteered to help and had a dance recital. In between those? ..the usual family stuff. Now , I am just slowing it down.  Calm before the storm so to speak. We have at least two weeks of rest and unplanned days. July will be another kind of fun, extra activities and busy for us. Our secret to not go stressing and crazy? Take it one week ( or a day) at a time , a good planner , lots of prayers and t remember that this day (or season) will pass. So try to find happiness and thankfulness in small things.

I had been craving for sweet and sour pork lately. Because of the busy weeks that we had, our fridge was not fully stocked yet. Luckily, a package of tofu and veggies ..saved the day. This recipe is so easy to make! Full of flavor and healthy to boot. Perfect for my craving. The sauce is so good and I love that the tasty sauce was absorbed by the tofu. Not everybody likes tofu. Depending on how you cook the tofu, it can really be bland. But this recipe? You will surely fall in love with a bowl full of  sweet and sour tofu.



Ingredients:

1 package extra firm tofu
2 tbsp cornstarch, divided
2 tbsp EVOO
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tsp organic powdered ginger
1 cup diced red bell pepper pepper,
1 cup diced green bell pepper pepper
1 cup , sliced zucchini
1 cup , sliced red onion
1/4 cup rice vinegar
1/4 cup sweetener of choice ( maple syrup, agave, raw honey)
2 tbsp liquid aminos
2 tbsp cold water
black pepper
optional: red pepper flakes or homemade sambal oelek

Directions:

Start by draining the tofu. Place the tofu on a plate lined with absorbent paper towels.
 Place another towel on top of the tofu and top with another plate. Leave it for 15 minutes then I flipped the tofu again, making sure to drain it well. Cut the tofu into 1 inch cubes ( or a little larger if you like) , place in a bowl, drizzle with 1 tbsp of cornstarch. Mix carefully.


Heat a wok or large pan over medium-high heat. Add oil and fry the tofu until crispy and golden brown on all sides, about 10 minutes. 


While the tofu is frying, in a separate bowl mix the rice vinegar, sweetener, and liquid aminos. . You can adjust the ingredients to your liking( sweet and tangy) I know some like it more sweet, some like it more salty. In a separate small bowl, stir together the water and remaining tablespoon of cornstarch. Add the cornstarch mixture to the sauce and set aside. When the tofu is cooked, remove it from the pan and drain on a plate lined with paper towel. 


  Heat a tbsp of  oil to the same frying pan ,  saute the red onion until translucent, add garlic .  Add the chopped vegetables and cook until tender, about 2 minutes. 


 Pour the sauce over and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer until the sauce has thickened. Remove from the heat and add the tofu. Stir to coat.


 Serve over warm rice or quinoa.

    Walnut Apple Crisp

    Home stretch. Teachers, the students and parents are all in the home stretch. Summer vacation is fast approaching! We already planned our summer activities and lessons. Honestly, I am looking forward for lazy mornings. Some school already had their last day of school this week. Speaking of last day of school, do not forget to grab your FREE last day of school printables HERE.

    With all the end of the school year recognition and awards that you may see across social media, just a reminder to also celebrate them . Not just their school awards , trophies and grades. Read , 35 Ways to Celebrate Your Children. 

    Do not get caught up with their certificates and of course we should be proud of them! It is YOUR and YOUR KIDS hard work. But beyond the school recognition, there are ways and reason to celebrate our kids. What better way to celebrate an event ( or no event) with a very easy to make and delicious warm WALNUT APPLE CRISP. I have made this in the past and I made a couple of revision. I added more butter and added walnuts. My husband and kiddos loved it. This is THE BEST WALNUT APPLE CRISP.



    It is seriously frugal and easy to make. You can skip the walnuts if you want it to be more budget friendly . BUT, the walnuts are my favorite in this recipe. Serve it warm or room temperature, it is just as good. Serve it with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.

    Are you drooling yet?

    I am over at My Joy Filled Life, sharing this recipe.


    It is so goood! Tasty all the way to the bottom. We seriously scraped the dish, no left over policy you know ( wink wink!)

    GET THE FULL RECIPE HERE ( My Joy Filled Life)
