Jolly Phonics 42 sounds by Renu Rajain
At Let’s learn phonics, we believe that learning a second language should be based on a combined teaching method that allows an appropriate, professional transfer of understanding. Accordingly, and after studying different teaching-learning styles, we believe that the Jolly Phonics method perfectly meets our expectations.
Jolly Phonics is a comprehensive method of interpreting and writing that simplifies communication and oral comprehension in English. Use the “synthetic phonics” system to teach sounds in a multisensory, fun and beautiful way for children to learn to read and write using the sound of letters, in the Early years.
1. Oral activities
From the first phase of learning the foreign tongue, oral comprehension, and communication activities are the main concern. The vocabulary will be developed, being accent and pronunciation a continuous concern. In grammar, children should become able to use straightforward and complex sentences with correction accurately. Children should know the spelling of the words they use.
With this method, we will teach children to use the basic alphabetic sounds for the beginning of the oral expression, reading, and writing, helping audio discrimination since, children must learn to recognize each letter by its sound, not by name.
For example, the consonant t has to be recognized as tt and not as tahh, and thus, knowing the sounds that represent the letters, graphemes, and words, a greater understanding of the language is achieved. The name of the letters will be learned later.
2. How to recognize sounds
Learning how to identify and synthesize sounds is not an easy assignment for all children. For this reason, the Jolly Phonics method is called “systematic phonics”
Children learn the (42) main letter sounds. Children learn how to recognize a letter by its sound and not by its name, a little essential to them to be able to combine sounds into words.
Some sounds are written with two letters like /ai/ and /ng//th/, which are called digraphs and may sound differently (rain/train/strong/three) so they have been signified differently to help recognize them.
These sounds are distributed into 7 groups in a particular order as shown
3. Letter formation
With the use of different multisensory methods, children learn how to create and write letters appropriately.
At this point, it is important that the child learns how to hold a pencil correctly. The pencil should be held by making a gripper between thumb and forefinger and supporting it with the middle finger. If children do not learn how to hold a pencil correctly from the outset, there will later be serious difficulties to correct it.
We teach kids a few pencil holding exercises and TRIPOD grasp.
We work lines on different formats and different materials: Rice, playdoh, sand, flour, paintbrushes, paint, Legos, etc. In time, children learn how to make form letters.
4. Letter blending
This is the process of saying sounds separately within a word and connecting them to create a new word, that is, children will be taught how to blend sounds and letters to read, write and communicate new keywords. For example, the passage from c-a-t to cat.
To start, the word is communicated sound to sound and children are given the opportunity to hear the word. It is appropriate to often practice with the children but initially begin with simple words such as c-u-t, h-o-p, p-a-t, and with the help of Jolly phonics flash cards.
5. Segmentation of sounds
The easiest way of understanding how a word is written accurately and spelled accurately is by listening and separating the sounds that make it. We can also say a word and then break down sounds by accompanying each sound with a quick look, at first we use simple words of three letters like -pen,-dog. And with the help of our multisensory toys and games.
6. Tricky words
There are more complicated words because they have unusual pronunciation. We cannot blend these words. There are different ways to help children learn how to write irregular words correctly. The first letter of each word of the sentence does not give the word we want to write. For teaching tricky words we use Tricky hat.
Finally, the materials used for the implementation of the Jolly Phonics method are the following:
- Big book: Big books are very colorful, and we use them to tell the story of each sound.
- Songs: They help children to develop the correct sound of each letter.
- Flashcards: They are extremely useful during the learning journey.
- Multisensory-materials: colors, playdoh, paint, Rice, to work on different sounds.
- Jolly phonics puppets: Inky, snake, mouse & tricky word hat.
- Jolly Phonics Pupil Book 1, 2, and 3: Book 1 introduces the 42 basic sounds necessary to understand and practice this second language. Book 2 provides children with numerous opportunities to practice reading and writing skills. Book 3 allows children to strengthen their language skills and continue to improve the acquisition of the second language through activities such as interactive dictations, comprehension skills.
- Digital whiteboard: It will allow us to secure all the contents in an interactive way.
