Children are taught the sounds that the different letters name, and not the names of the letters. In Jolly Phonics, 42 different sounds are taught. Children are taught how to form write letters using a pencil. Children are taught how to blend individual sounds together in order to read full words. Lots of blending practice builds reading fluency. Children are taught how to hear the individual sounds in full words so that they can break them down to write and spell them correctly.
Some words do not follow the sound rules. Children are taught these words separately, alongside strategies to remember them. In English, even though there are only 26 letters, there are actually 42 different sounds. As seen in the picture, Jolly Phonics teaches these 42 sounds in 7 different groups.
Group 1 starts with the easiest sounds, and the sounds gradually get harder. At first, children are taught the most simple or common way of spelling each of the 42 sounds, as seen in the picture. Later, they are introduced to the alternative spellings. If you would like to try teaching new letter sounds to your child, you should complete all of the following steps.
The Jolly Phonics Lessons App is very useful in providing all of the content that you need for teaching the different steps. There are also guidance and activity sheets available to download in the resources section of this website. Remember, the letter sounds should be taught in the order set out above, so start with Group 1 sounds and move on from there. Introduce a new sound to your child by telling the Jolly Phonics story containing the sound.
See the resources page for stories that you can download, or find the stories in the Jolly Phonics Lessons App. Try to be fun and engaging whilst telling the story. Whilst saying the sound, demonstrate the action for that sound to your child. Ask them to do the action with you.
Find pictures and descriptions of all the actions on the downloadable actions sheet on the resources page, and also in the Phonics Lessons App. Show your child the letters that form the sound by holding up a flashcard. Ask your child to say the sound and do the action each time you hold up the flashcard. Revise all of the sounds taught so far by showing the different flashcards one-by-one. Make your own flashcards like the teacher has in the picture or use the flashcard on the Phonics Lessons App.
Show your child how to write the letter. Think of other ways to practice forming letters with your child. For guidance on how a letter is formed, look at the formation section on the Phonics Lessons App. Show your child some words with the sounds in that they have learnt so far. Say the sounds individually together and then blend them together to read the words. Remember, do not show words that have sounds in that your child has not learnt yet.
Use the word bank in the Phonics Lessons App, or the word booklet in the resources section to find words to use after each sound has been taught.
