What is Jolly Phonics?
Jolly Phonics is a fun and child centred approach to teaching literacy through synthetic phonics. With actions for each of the 42 letter sounds, the multi-sensory method is very motivating for children and teachers, who can see their students achieve. The letter sounds are split into seven groups as shown below.
There are many research studies that have documented the achievements of teachers with Jolly Phonics hence its widespread adoption. However, Serene Educational Resources integrate Jolly Phonics and book levelling in teaching children how to read and write.
