In Erain Txiki we work the lenguage of English with different methods, one of these methods is the so called Jolly Phonics. wich teaches the 42 main letter sounds in English, not just the alphabet sounds. With this knowledge they are taken through stages of blending sounds to form words and then to reading.
At the same time they are taught to write by identifying the sounds in words and relating the letters to those sounds.
Each sound is taught with a gesture, a song and images so that children could remember the letter represented.
Children recognize letters by their sounds not by their names.
This is the way english children learn their mother tongue and its correct pronunciation.
We work phonics with a method for the Whiteboard two days a week.
Jolly Phonics for the Whiteboard provides a complete teaching framework for the first year of learning to read and write. There are structured daily sessions, with step-by-step guidance.
The five basic skills in Jolly Phonics are:
- Learning the letter sounds
- Learning letter formation
- Identifying sounds in words
- Learning the tricky words.
