Fun Phonics Pre-reading Framework CPD Training

(For Very Young Leaners: 3-5 year olds)

With Independent Synthetic Phonics Trainer

& Literacy Consultant Beki Wilson

Saturday 18th June from 9:30 to 13:30 at the Work&Wifi, Calle Princesa. Madrid.

The Fun Phonics Pre-reading Framework is an informal framework or bank of practical ideas and activities that can be used at home by parents or at school by teachers. It covers the introduction of basic literacy concepts to Very Young Learners (3-5-year-olds) using a multi-sensory approach to teaching through everyday, simple classroom activities.

Through the use of topics, language play, songs, art and role-play, it is possible for Very Young Learners to become aware of how sounds are linked to letters and words, creating positive reading and writing experiences from the earliest stages in preschool. Exposure to the English language using a natural and fun approach also helps to develop and reinforce skills such as pronunciation, vocabulary, language comprehension and acquisition essential for ESL-learners

The Fun Phonics Framework offers child-friendly and age-appropriate weekly planning ideas that cover the 42 letter sounds that are later formally introduced in the first year of the Jolly Phonics programme. Links are provided to appropriate resources that can be used in Jolly Phonics, as well as simple songs and musical games covered in the Jolly Music programme.

Popular Early Years themes and topics are also included in the Framework, as well as suggested vocabulary lists, blending and segmenting ideas, children´s literature and more than 200 creative activity ideas that can be adapted and used in any educational setting.

This course has been specifically designed for nursery and preschool teachers of English, although everyone is welcome and no background knowledge or experience is required. Each delegate will receive a copy of the Fun Phonics Spain Pre-reading Framework and a Certificate of Attendance on completion of the course.

Beki Wilson has been teaching young (ESL) learners in Spain for more than 16 years. She currently works as a full-time teacher trainer and literacy consultant in a number of European countries.
