Jolly Toddlers – A Prelude to Jolly Phonics is a new course that I launched in 2016 in support of educators who would like to introduce pre-literacy skills with the nursery stages (3-4 year olds).
The Jolly Phonics Handbook is a formal reading, writing and spelling programme that was designed to be introduced to 4-5 year old children or beginners. Whilst some children may be ready, at the age of 3 to start the 5 core skills that make up the programme, many still are not.
Jolly Toddlers is a fun, interactive and practical course that demonstrates how skills such as learning letter sounds (simple & complex alphabetic code), exposure to language and text, music and songs and simple, creative everyday activities can reinforce language acquisition and pronunciation which are necessary skills for second language learners.
Also included in the training course is The Fun Phonics Framework, an informal teacher/parent guide that offers weekly lessons plans, covering the 42 letter sounds that are later introduced in the Jolly Phonics Handbook. This use of this guide a at home or at school is 100% flexible and can be used if and when necessary. The guide also offers over 200 practical ideas that are appropriate for (ESL) preschool children to be used over the course of approximately 1-2 years.
Above all, the Framework highlights the importance of getting creative with young children and the use of a wide range of materials and resources that both compliment and reinforce the Early Years Bilingual curriculum and early childhood development.
Although I wrote and developed the Framework as an independent work, it has been approved and endorsed by Jolly Learning Ltd, London.
