Letter Sound Order
Sounds are taught in a specific order, it is not taught alphabetically. Learning sounds using Jolly Phonics allows children to begin building words as early as possible.
Here are the three skills taught in Jolly Phonics!
Learning the Letter Sounds
There are 7 groups of letter sounds. Children will learn 42 main letter sounds including alphabet sounds and digraphs such as ai, ch, sh and ou.
Blending the Sounds
Children will learn to blend sounds to form different words and then to read.
Identifying the Sounds
Children learn to write by identifying the sounds in words and relating the letters to those sounds.
At School of Concepts, we use a multi-sensory approach to inculcate interest for learning.
