Transcript of Jolly Phonics

By concentrating on correct letter formation and pencil hold habits can be prevented.

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.

•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
/or/ thought
/oo/ through
/ou/ plough
/u/ thorough
The alphabetic code needs to be taught from simple to complex.
Is a synthetic-phonics program.

Multi-sensory way
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.

Jolly Phonics
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

Vowels: Special letters.
At this point, the children can be taught that the other letters are consonants.

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.
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.

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.

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. When children can hear each sound in a simple word and know how to write the letters that represent those sounds, they can write hundreds of words by themselves, such as mat, pen, hop, lid, fun, bed, run, it; the list goes on.

The ability to hear the sounds in words does not usually develop naturally, and when people report that a child cannot hear the sounds in words, it is usually because he or she has not yet been taught this skill. Fortunately, it is relatively easy to teach a child to identify sounds. Nevertheless, in order to teach the children this skill, it is first necessary for the teacher to be able to hear the sounds in words.
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.

Teaching segmenting:
Hold up fingers to count sounds in words.
Use arm to teach directionality.
Focus on the beginning sounds first, then focus in the last sounds and finally, focus on the middle sounds of the words.

When the first digraphs are introduced, the children need to understand that sometimes they have to write two letters for a sound. The first digraph is the /ai/ sound. The children listen for the sounds in a word containing /ai/, for example nail, and call out, /n/-/ai/-/l/, holding up a finger for each of the three sounds. 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. Other /ai/ words can then be called out for the children to segment, such as, rain, paint, sail, fail, pain, and drain.

The skill of writing can be demonstrated by asking for the sounds in the words and writing the letters on the board as the children call them out. The word can then be blended and read. This allows the children to see the significance of encoding to write and decoding to read.
Initial consonant blends: bl, cl, fl, pl, sl, br, cr, dr, fr, gr, pr, tr, st, sc, sm, sn, tw, shr, thr, scr, spr and str.
Final consonant blends:
lb, ld, lf, lk, lm, ln, lp, lt, ct, ft, nt, pt, xt, mp and nd.
In order to help the children hear all the sounds in consonant and final blends, call out the blends and ask the children to say the individual sounds, holding up a finger for each one. For example, say /cr/ and ask the children to respond with the sound /c/ (holding up the thumb) and /r/ (holding up the index finger). Call out several more of these blends. Take care that the component letter sounds have already been taught. Then, on a regular basis, call out a few words containing consonant blends, so that the children can count the sounds.

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.
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 are more able to read and write tricky words when they have knowledge of letter sounds and can relate those sounds to symbols. When learning to read tricky words, the children should initially blend the letter sounds together, before learning the correct pronunciation. The 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.
In the Jolly Phonics program, there are 72 tricky words. For ease of learning, these words have been divided up into color-coded groups of twelve tricky words each.
The Jolly Phonics list of tricky words has been designed so that it starts with the most frequently used words; it is also designed so that words with the same spelling patterns are taught in the same group. For this reason, it is advisable to teach the tricky words in order.
Introducing the tricky words

The introduction of the tricky words should ideally start when the sixth group of letter sounds is being taught. The tricky words can then be taught at a pace of three new tricky words a week; although more can be taught, if they share a similar spelling pattern, examples being: he, she, me, we and be.

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
Word wall
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)

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.

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.
