Transcript of Jolly Phonics
The extra focus on these skills also makes it easier for the children to develop neat, fluent, joined handwriting; this in turn means that they take pride in their work.
If young children are to achieve neat, legible handwriting:
Anyone who has tried to correct an older child´s bad pencil hold, or incorrect formation, knows how difficult, if not impossible, it can be.

Learning words as wholes:
Sound out the letters in simple words from left to right and then blend (synthesise) the sounds.
WRITE MADE UP WORDS
•Teach the alphabetic code, use blending.
•Read words rather than trying to memorize.
•Avoid asking the
children to read or
write a word that
contains a letter-
sound that has not been taught.
Children are taught how to write letters
synthetic-phonics programs also teach digraphs.
Synthetic phonics can make the difference
between a good reader and a poor one
The complexity of the English alphabetic code
One spelling can represent multiple sounds:
e.g. "ough" /oa/ though
The alphabetic code needs to be taught from simple to complex.
Is a synthetic-phonics program.
Teaches children in a
How the English reading and writing system works.
To use the basic alphabetic code to work out unknown words before expecting them to read books for themselves or to write independently.
One sound can be represented
by one, two, three or four
letters: e.g. k, sh, ou, igh, eigh
One sound can be represented by different spellings: e.g. /oa/ is represented by: 0, oa, ow, oe, o-e, ough
fast pace *(special factors:age, frequency of lessons, etc.)
lower-case letters, capital letters will be taught incidentally.
We use the letter-sounds not their names. (after the 5th group)
Vowels: Special letters.
At this point, the children can be taught that the other letters are consonants.
VOWELS AND CONSONANTS
Reinforcement of the letter sounds:
Running to the correct
Fishing for letters
A new sound that is represented by two letters.
e.g. sh, ou, ai, ee, *th, *oo, etc.
Two or more sounds blended
together. Each letter says its sound
e.g. st as in stop
fl as in flower.
ALTERNATIVE SPELLING OF LETTER-SOUNDS
After learning the 42 sounds, children need to be taught that some sounds can be written in different ways. These alternative spellings are taught gradually during the rest of the year.
*If one way doesn´t work, try the other.
TEACHING LETTER FORMATION:
It is useful to see if students are tracing letters correctly.
Learn lower-cases first.
To learn the correct use of capital letters.
Go through the stories, actions and songs of the 42 letter-sounds
letter sounds video
Give your own ideas and try some of ours.
Write as many words as you can using group one letter-sounds (s, a, t, i, p, n)
It is progressive and
b and d are in separate groups.
The "c" is introduced early.(a,d,o,g,q)
Learning the letter sounds
The process of looking at the letters, say the sounds and hear the word.
Every sound in the word is needed for blending.
The number of sounds can be fewer than the number of letters.
The children who can hear the words understand how the alphabetic code works. They realize that the code is something they can work out for themselves.
Reading books (after the 8th/9th week)
Blending consonant blends and digraphs
Say the consonant blend first and then the following individual sounds.
With the digraphs, say just the one sound that the two letters make together.
When two vowels go walking, the first does the talking.
Identifying sounds in words
Hearing the sounds in words is one of the main skills needed for writing.
Segmenting is the skill needed to hear the sounds in words and to develop phonemic awareness.
Good spellers are aware of the sounds they write.
ENCODING: Hear the sounds and write them
words within words (pink, mice, bus, block, twin, stop)
Pictures with dots.
1. Single letters
2. CVC words
3. Words with consonant blends and digraphs.
4. Tricky words.
5. Short sentences.
6. Capital letters.
7. Teach full stop and when to use capital letters.
* Jolly Phonics dictionary and word bank book
As soon as a child can hear the sounds in words and knows how to write the 42 sounds, they can write anything they want to say.
At first, the children will not be able to use conventional spelling, but their work can be read by others. The sentence,
‘mie mumi poot mie book in mie scool bag’
is a typical outcome. Accurate spelling comes as a result of extensive reading, knowledge of the alternative spellings and the use of a systematic spelling program.
It is impossible for young children to have the freedom to write exactly what they want to say, and to spell all the words correctly. If everything is corrected, it is demoralising, and discourages the children from writing so freely. Generally speaking, it is best to restrict the errors marked to about three or four words.
72 TRICKY WORDS:
Tricky words are frequently used words that are either irregular, or can only be read with phonic knowledge that has not yet been taught. Despite their name, some part of a tricky word will always be regular. For example, in the word come the ‹c› and ‹m› are regular; the ‹o_e› is awkward because it makes an /u/ sound. The children think of the awkward bits as being out to trick them!
Children find it interesting to look carefully for the ‘tricky’ part in the words; by doing this they start to analyze words. The children’s extra attention to the details helps to store the word in their memories.
Teaching the spelling of tricky words
The children should only begin to learn how to spell tricky words when they can read the first ones easily. Aim to teach the spellings of about two tricky words a week, making sure that the children also revise those already taught. Some fortunate children have a sufficiently good visual memory to master the spelling of the tricky words just by reading them. However, most children have to be specifically taught.
Research evidence tells us that the spelling ability of synthetic-phonics taught children is higher than that of children taught by other methods.
Teaching the spelling of tricky words:
Look, copy, cover, write, check
Say it as it sounds
Word families or patterns for example, the word like should be linked to the words (bike, trike, hike, pike and Mike)
Give an example of a Jolly Phonics class.
Design a Jolly Phonics class in teams.
The tricky words in English always cause problems. Learning to read these words is easier than learning to spell them. By teaching the children to observe the irregularities, and by giving them techniques and simple rules, you are enabling them to be more accurate in their spelling.
What is a
* activity: dictation
True or False
A whole word approach teaches words as wholes and relies on memory skills.
With the Analytic Phonics approach we can teach the digraphs.
Synthetic phonics has a slow pace and teaches one letter per week.
Jolly Phonics is a program that uses a multisensory approach.
The English alphabetic code is complex because it has influence from different languages.
The English code has 100 sounds.
When reading unknown words, we use our knowledge of the alphabetic code.
Hearing the sounds in words is important for writing.
Blending is used for writing.
A digraph is when two letters make a new sound together.
A consonant blend is when two consonants are together in a word and only one says its sound.
Jolly Phonics teaches the sounds following the alphabetical order.
Mirror writing is for you to check if your students are doing the letters correctly.
Flashcards or reading schemes
Repetition of high-frequency words.
Whole word approach:
. Look and Say:
Identify printed words by using cues from context and pictures.
more practice and constant blending and segmenting of regular words
*Words are a code. pictures help but that is not reading.
Blending the word a few times=
words to blend
And identify the individual sounds in words.
At the same time
READING INSTRUCTION IN ENGLISH:
The way Written symbols represent speech sounds
Uses context and initial sounds to "guess"words.
Relies on memory
Rarely teaches digraphs.
READ MADE UP WORDS
* THINK CAREFULLY ABOUT THE PROCESS...
How we work out words using the ALPHABETIC CODE?
Knowledge of sounds
Blending from left to right
Write letters for the sounds
*With Jolly Phonics, these skills are taught to children as early as possible so that they too can work out words for themselves.

BLENDING WRITTEN WORDS
There are two types of sounds in English:
Sounds that have a schwa
shy i and toughy y
Magic letter (unicorn, acorn)
If the short sound doesn´t work, try the long one (apron)
In order to teach the children this skill, it is first necessary for the teacher to be able to hear the sounds in words.
Hear each sound in a word
Knows how to write
the letters to represent
Write hundreds of words
The ability to hear sounds
Hold up fingers to count sounds in words.
Use arm to teach directionality.
FOCUS ON BEGINNING SOUND FIRST
DECODING: Blend the sounds for reading
Initial and Final
ACTIVITY: DICTATION OF CONSONANT BLENDS
Two letters for one sound
As the sounds are spoken the letters can be written on the board. When the ‹ai› is written on the board, it reinforces the idea that this single sound is written with two letters.
