This engaging activity is great for subitising and learning the first 6 jolly phonics sounds at the same time! Students roll a six sided dice and cross the letter which corresponds with the number on the table. First player to cross off all their sounds wins!
Phonics board linked to RWI. Children look at the picture say the word then use the letters to help sound out the word. I start this with just asking for the initial sound of a word (the other letters are already there) then build up to initial and end, then finally the whole word.
Phase 1 , Letters and Sounds. I filled pairs of eggs with different objects (bells, oats, rice, sand, pennies etc.) the children had to find 2 eggs that had the same sound. Quite tricky, and really encouraged careful listening.
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.
