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.

Very simple to use program which has finally gotten through to children. This has been the best phonics program for us. I have 3 different programs that I have tried and this finally got the twins to remember their letter sound and try blending them. I have the jolly phonics song cd and board book. Really well done and fun to do. I hated phonics and learning to read when I was little and I love this program. Wish it had been around when I was little and struggling to read.

If you subscribe to the mindset of keeping it simple then this is all that you need to teach your children to readPerhaps with other lower level curricula the teachers manual is optional to implementing the course but the alternative is true here The teacher's handbook is essential The handbook contains lesson plans blackline masters & extra activities - more than enough to keep the interest and vary your children's learning experience all in a wonderfully functional spiral bindingThe most intensive part of the preparation is photocopying each page once and setting them aside for when you need themIt is organized into specific groups of letters/sounds so that even at the end of the very first group children can already put them (s i t n p a) together and read Each day you give your child one sheet and introduce the sound of a letter via a story and for which there is a prescribed action This takes less than 5 minutes and you can literally open up the handbook and start The child does the action learns the sound traces the letter and colors in the picture that relates to the sound of the letter (and provides a visual clue) These pages can be stuck into a scrapbook as the child's very own reading reference and they do use them over and over again as long as you encourage them to Great for all learning modalities: auditory kinesthetic & visual Extra activities can be used along the way - sound memory game We have used this twice over now and I am looking forward to using it again with our own because I know that it works and its a keeper for the future grandchildren too! Used ever-increasingly in the USA England Canada Australia New Zealand Spain the Middle East Asia and Africa in schools homes and remedial education it is also effective with English-as-a-Second-Language (adult) students and the intellectually disabled tooHaving the benefit of hindsight the only thing that I would now add to my purchase of the teachers manual are the animated dvds First time around I could give one-on-one attention 24/7 to our eldest Second time around there are other children and the dvds have been great to reinforce and extend our 2nd eldest the younger 2 enjoy them as well and I learned a thing or two myself!
