Jolly Phonics

Learn through active, fun actions, stories & songs!

Jolly Phonics is a program which uses Synthetic Phonics, a multisensory method using letter sounds to teach reading, writing, and grammar in a fun and effective way.

How does it work?
There are 5 key skills to reading & writing:
1. Learning the letter sounds: 42 sounds of English are taught with an action to help remember the letters that represent it.
2. Learning letter formation: How to form and write letters. Cursive (joined up writing) to help with fluency of writing & improve spelling.
3. Blending: Process of saying individual sounds in a word & running them together to make the word (ex. d-o-g & dog).
4. Segmenting – Identifying sounds in words: Listening for sounds in words with rhyming games, poems & jolly songs.
5. Spelling the tricky words using different methods:
   a. Look, Cover, Write & Check
   b. Say it as it sounds.
   c. Mnemonics
   d. Cursive writing to improve spelling.
Various resources are used to facilitate learning & teaching important skills, such as storybooks to improve comprehension & understanding of more words.
