Jolly Phonics

Over the past few months we have been learning our alphabet sounds through the jolly phonics. We have been learning the sounds from each stage one by one. We do so singing the jingles and working on an activity that applies to that particular sound. The four and five year old children use word cards that contain that particular sound and form the word by using magnetic letters while sounding the sounds out. The five year old children with advanced literacy skills are reading and writing sentences that contain the jolly phonic words.

Example: Ms Nerissa, Neo, Jackson and Georgie were discussing the ‘oa’ sound. Ms Nerissa explained that the word oak begins with this sound and normally we would find this sound in the middle of words such as toad, road, coat and boat.  Neo, Jackson and Georgie were deciding which word that they would practice writing. Neo has written and read the word road, and Jackson has noticed that the words boat and coat rhyme.



Quality Area 1.1.1: Curriculum decision making contributes to each child’s learning and development outcomes in relation to their identity, connection with community, wellbeing, and confidence as learners and effectiveness as communicators. (NQF)
