Product Description:

The Jolly Phonics Activity Books (one for each set of letters) are colorful and provide sound sheets that coordinate with the stories in the Finger Phonics books. Each provides a picture to color, a reminder of the action associated with the sound, lower-case letters to trace, and several words that begin with the sound. Two pages of stickers are also included, along with instructions. 36 pgs each.

Letter/sound introduction is a bit unusual in Jolly Phonics and is in this order.

  • #1 - s, a, t, i, p, n
  • #2 - c/k, e, h, r, m, d
  • #3 - g, o, u, l, f, b
  • #4 - ai, j, oa, ie, ee, or
  • #5 - z, w, ng, v, oo (two sounds)
  • #6 - y, x, ch, sh, th (two sounds)
  • #7 - qu, ou, oi, ue, er, ar

Publisher Description:

Jolly Phonics Activity Book 1-7 (in print letters) is the complete set of 7 fun-filled activity books for children, each covering one group of letter sounds. Jolly Phonics teaches children to read and write using synthetic phonics in a fun and engaging way.

Each of these 36 page activity books for children aged 3+, including 2 pages of stickers provide a range of fun activities for children to complete, including coloring, handwriting practice, puzzles, mazes, games, craft activities, word & picture matching and flash cards. There is a story for each of the letter sounds as well as the letter sound action, introducing synthetic phonics in a fun and multi-sensory way, giving children solid support at home.


Category Description for Jolly Phonics:

Kids will have a jolly good time learning to read with this well-constructed program which originated in Great Britain. With the help of winsome Inky Mouse and her friends, Snake (a truly lovable snake if there ever was one) and Bee, five skills are taught in tandem throughout the program and at three age levels. Each level reviews and expands upon the previous content. A true spiral program.

Stories Board Book plus Activities Books (ages 3+)

Finger Phonics plus Workbooks and Level 0 Readers (ages 4+)

Student Books plus Decodable Readers (ages 5+)

These each cover the same seven groupings of 42 letter sounds (non-alphabetical). These groupings and progression allow immediate decoding of many words. Accompanying skills are: learning letter sounds, learning letter formation (handwriting), blending, identifying the sounds in words, and learning tricky (irregular) words.

The lesson material is straight-forward, but fun. Stories of the three friends provide the context for all the instructional information. Children learn via visual, auditory, and tactile-kinesthetic modes (for instance, sky writing and finger-tracing of letters). Letter sounds are introduced along with a set of movements that serve as mnemonic devices. All program components are high quality, well-designed, and easy to use; most are brightly colored. The black and white Phonics Handbook, however, provides the same exact content as the colorful Student Books and Teacher Book. All student content in the Handbook is reproducible, and the book can be used by itself or alongside any of the other, more colorful components. You do not need to have the Handbook in order to use the Student and Teacher Books.

Letter introduction in this series is a bit unusual and in the following order:

#1: s, a, t, i, p, n

#2: c/k, e, h, r, m, d

#3: g, o, u, l, f, b

#4: ai, j, oa, ie, ee, or

#5: z, w, ng, v, oo (two sounds)

#6: y, x, ch, sh, th (two sounds)

#7: qu, ou, oi, ue, er, ar

All materials follow this order and most have components that are numbered accordingly (i.e. Finger Phonics Books 1-7). Initially only one way of representing each sound is presented. Afterwards, the main alternatives are covered. For example, at first the long a sound is taught with the /ai/ spelling as in rain. Later the alternatives /ay/ as in day, and /a_e/ as in came are taught.

The spiral nature of the components provides interesting options. You can begin at any of the age levels. Instruction builds within a level but each level also reviews all previously taught concepts so you won’t miss any content. There is overlap in terms of appeal between the levels for certain components (i.e. Songs) meaning some of the media items can be used for the PK level as well as K. In general, the components for each level are as follows:

Ages 3+ (PK): Stories Board Book and Activities Book. Also enjoyed: DVD, Songs Book/CD, Letter Sound Poster

Ages 4+ (K4): Finger Phonics Books 1-7, Workbooks 1-7, and Decodable Readers Level 0. Also enjoyed: DVD, Songs Book/CD, Letter Sounds Poster, Word Book

Ages 5+ (K): Student Books 1-3, Teacher Book, Decodable Readers Levels 1-2. Also enjoyed: Word Book, Dictionary, Blend Wheels.

Ages 6+ (1): Decodable Readers Levels 3-4 (plus Jolly Grammar Level 1).

Rainbow Resource has packages geared to these levels.

There are several apps for smartphones and tablets available at the respective app stores. Some are free and some require a small fee. Jolly Phonics Letter Sounds, Jolly Phonics Lessons, Jolly Songs, and an app for teachers.

In summary, Jolly Phonics is an excellent program whether beginning with a PK or K student. In a relatively short time, they will be reading and writing. It goes much deeper than most beginning phonics programs, though stops a little short of a complete K-2 program. Follow up with Jolly Grammar for a solid grammar and spelling program that expands upon the phonics program and provides excellent language arts instruction.

Fun Phonics
With the schools shutting down early in 2019 because of Covid, I was concerned about my granddaughter falling behind. She loved these books. She finished the first book in 3 days because she wanted to keep working on it.
