Synthetic Phonics – Jolly Phonics in Detail


This PD provides teachers with a more detailed look at the Jolly Phonics program. Many examples of hand on strategies that can be immediately implemented into the classroom are shown. We also highlight how easy it is to adapt the Jolly Phonics program to suit the specific needs of your class. The importance of phonemic awareness is shown as a tool towards helping children with the skills of blending and segmenting.

A full day will include the introductory PD (see above) together with how digraphs are introduced in Kindergarten, ongoing assessment of phonemic awareness, a planning framework of the 42 phonemes and how the skills of reading and writing are developed. Full day or 4 hour PD session.
