A ‘hands-on’ approach to the Jolly Phonics Program

Saturday 3rd of February, 2018

Learn how you can use the School Start Buddy and School Start Spelling Case to teach the Jolly Phonics program.  The benefits of this approach are:

  • Everyone is involved in the lessons. Since every child has their own case and is following the teacher’s instructions, every child participates in the learning.
  • It caters for the different learning needs within your classroom so that every child achieves the foundational literacy skills covered in the Jolly Phonics Program.
  • Finding magnetic letters and making words is more eff­icient because they are clearly displayed on one of the whiteboards.
  • Children develop good listening skills.
  • It is ‘hands-on’ visual learning that promotes discussion and discovery about words.
  • Children who have poor handwriting skills and don’t enjoy writing can develop foundational literacy skills.
  • Children develop sorting and organisational skills.

Everyone who attends the workshop has the option to receive discounted prices on a class set of School Start Buddy Cases or School Start Spelling Cases.
