Transcript of jolly phonics w1

Jolly Phonics is a fun and child centred approach to teaching literacy through synthetic phonics. With actions for each of the 42 letter sounds, the multi-sensory method is very motivating for children and teachers, who can see their students achieve. The Jolly Phonics characters Inky Mouse, Snake and Bee are used throughout the materials. They often reflect the different speeds at which children learn to read and write. Inky Mouse teaches Snake and Bee the letter sounds and reading techniques. Snake picks up the literacy skills quickly, while Bee has more difficulty, but eventually understands. What is Jolly Phonics? Enter the interactive world of Inky Mouse and her friends as they help children learn to read and write. With 20 fun-filled activities, children will be able to practice all of the five skills in Jolly Phonics:
- learning the letter sounds
- learning letter formation
- reading (blending)
- identifying the sounds in words
- tricky words (sight words)
The games are available in different levels: Easy, Medium or Hard -- ideal for children at all levels of early reading. The main menu features Inky's mousehole where all games can be accessed. There are seven zones, each teaching a particular skill. By clicking on each of these, children will be taken through a number of fun and enjoyable games. Finger Phonics Books
The Finger Phonics books teach children how to recognize and form the 42 main letter sounds. An action and storyline are given for every sound and each of the 16-page board books covers a specific group of letters.
Cut-out letters on each page show children's fingers the correct formation for every letter and are great for preschoolers to practice forming letters without holding a pencil. Book 1: s a t i p n
Book 2: c k e h r m d
Book 3: g o u l f b
Book 4: ai j oa ie ee or
Book 5: z w ng v oo
Book 6: y x ch sh th
Book 7: qu ou oi ue er ar Jolly Songs

Children will delight to this collection of songs set to popular tunes. As they sing along, they learn each of the 42 letter sounds in Jolly Phonics. These songs are sung by children on the audio CD. Perfect for use at home, one-to-one teaching small groups and preschools. Jolly Dictionary

The award-winning Jolly Dictionary complements the Jolly Grammar books and is designed to teach children how to look up and understand words they don't know. Teaching children how to use a dictionary will improve reading and writing, and help them become independent learners. How to Teach Children Jolly Phonics Gather one groups of sounds for the days lessons. You will need an entire group of lessons. The 42 sounds are separated into groups of 7. There are a total of 6 groups. They are grouped to avoid confusion and to follow the sequence of development. For instance, b and d are easily confused; they are in different groups. Prepare your materials to begin teaching the first section. The sounds are taught in a specific order (not alphabetically). This enables children to begin building words as early as possible. Stories, Actions, and Pictures: Introducing New Letter-Sounds with Jolly Phonics in Kindergarten Read the story that goes with the sound that you are teaching. Each sound is accompanied by a storybook that uses the sound repeatedly. Read the story to your student, making sure to enunciate on the sound you are trying to teach. This is a good tool for your auditory students, those who learn by hearing A collection of songs set to popular tunes for each of the 42 letter sounds is recommended to practice each time a new sound has been introduced.
Provide crayons and corresponding lesson sheets for the children to color. Each sound has at least one coloring sheet that goes with it. This is helpful for children who are visual as well as kinesthetic. Visual children will enjoy seeing the letter, and kinesthetic learners will love the action of being able to color it. Using different multi-sensory methods, children learn how to form and write the letters.
It is very important that a child holds their pencil in the correct way.
The pencil should be held in the “tripod” grip between the thumb and the first two fingers. The grip is the same for both left and right handed children. If a child’s hold starts incorrectly, it is very difficult to correct later on. Mimic the action of that sound. Each sound also has an activity that should be performed for that sound. Kinesthetic learners learn by doing; having an activity is a great way to cement that sound into the students' heads. Blend sounds together. Once all 42 sounds are learned, you can begin blending the sounds together. Let your child read signs and practice blending sounds together. Read lots of books; practice blending. The more you expose your child to sounds and written words, the more he will want to be a reader.
Listening for the sounds in words gives children the best start for improving spelling.
The easiest way to know how to spell a word is to listen for the sounds in that word. Even with the tricky words an understanding of letter sounds can help. Tricky words have irregular spellings and children learn these separately.
There are a number of ways to learn tricky words:
1. Look, Cover, Write and Check. Look at the word to see which bit is tricky. Ask the child to try writing the word in the air saying the letters. Cover the word over and see if the child can write it correctly. Check to make sure.
