Jolly Phonics is a program that is meant to teach letters and letter sounds. There are a TON of different ways for children to learn their letters and sounds – this is just one. I will write about many different incidental learning activities to help your wee one learn their letters and sounds in more natural situations. However, I had to add in my two cents about Jolly Phonics and why I love it.
Jolly phonics suggests teaching letters in this order
By teaching the letters in this manner, children are able to begin forming words very quickly. After learning the first 6 letters kids can make words in the “at”, “an”, “it”, “ip”, “ap” and “in” families.
The program also encourages multi-sensory ways for kids to learn about letter formation. As well, the program addresses the 42 sounds – not just the 26 letters. This allows kids to segment words better and can actually improve spelling.
