Student & Teacher Books (Jolly Phonics)
Jolly Phonics materials target different ages but the actual instructional content is ordered the same for each group utilizing the seven letter sound groupings. The spiral nature of the components provides interesting options. You can begin at any of the age levels. Instruction builds within a level, but the next level also reviews all concepts and expands so you won’t miss any content.
The core instruction for Kindergarten/First Grade is found in the Teacher & Student Books plus the reading practice from the Decodable Readers. The three Student Books each feature all 42 letter sounds and are used for reinforcement and further skill development. They cover letter formation, listening for letter sounds in words, blending activities, and tricky words. The books build on each other; each introducing more tricky words as well as sound spellings and spelling patterns and even basic sentence structure. They are designed to be used sequentially.
The Teacher Book provides a general overview of the program along with teaching instruction for each aspect of the program. There are also detailed lesson plans for each page of the three Student Books, as well as reduced copies of those student pages.
The Jolly Phonics Student/Teacher Books Kit provides the core phonics instruction of the program through the three Student Books and Teacher Book.
