Jolly Phonics - a child-centred approach to teaching literacy Jolly Learning
What is Jolly Phonics? 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. Letter Sound Order The sounds are taught in a specific order (not alphabetically). How does Jolly Phonics work? Using a synthetic phonics approach, Jolly Phonics teaches children the five key skills for reading and writing. The five skills taught in Jolly Phonics 1.Learning the letter sounds Children are taught the 42 main letter sounds. 2.Learning letter formation Using different multi-sensory methods, children learn how to form and write the letters. 3.Blending Children are taught how to blend the sounds together to read and write new words. 4.Identifying the sounds in words (Segmenting) 5.Tricky words Related:  Phonics

BBC Learning English | Pronunciation Tips STARFALL: LEARN TO READ WITH PHONICS Os voy a presentar la metodología de Phonics un método para aprender a leer en inglés que muchos profesores ya están poniendo en práctica en sus aulas a la hora de enseñar a leer en inglés a los más pequeños. Lo haré a través de una página web llamada Starfall, pero primero veamos en que consiste esta metodología. La mayoría de los españoles hemos aprendido a leer en inglés pronunciando las palabras prácticamente como lo haríamos en nuestra lengua. Esto no se hace correcto, puesto en la lengua inglesa existen 44 fonemas, mientras que en la lengua castellana usamos solo 22. Además en castellano la escritura representa fonéticamente la palabra hablada mientras que en inglés hay muchas maneras gráficas de representar un mismo sonido y una misma combinación gráfica puede representar hasta ocho sonidos diferentes. Si desde pequeños nos hubiesen enseñado la correcta interpretación de la escritura en inglés, hoy en día no tendríamos problema en leer adecuadamente. Veamos un ejemplo.

Phonology and the brain: it’s all in the features. | Language …and the vision that was planted in my brain still remains, within the sound of silence. (Simon and Garfunkel, The sound of silence 1964) Sound is made of waves. One fundamental trick of speech is that it surfs those waves by slicing them up into discrete bits. Recently, Mesgarani et al. (2014) (see also ) have shown how our brains respond to speech in this cut up fashion, attending to the very features that linguists uncovered after decades of research, in their efforts to make sense of the sound systems of human languages in a branch of Linguistics known as Phonology. Speech is the messenger of language, carrying thoughts in and out our minds. The history of phonemes goes back at least 2.400 years, to the Ashtadhyayi , the rigorous and exhaustive Sanskrit grammar composed by Pāṇini in the Vedic Period. Let us bring in an example. Linguists of the first half of the twentieth century often debated on the “reality” of phonemes and distinctive features.

JOLLY PHONICS Jolly Phonics el el sistema por el que se trabaja la lectura y la escritura en Reino Unido. Es un método que resulta muy divertido para trabajar las letras y sus sonidos en inglés, tanto para los profesores como para los niños. Se trata de un método fonético sintético que enseña a los niños y niñas de manera multisensorial: a través de imagen, movimiento y sonido. Como vemos, todo beneficios, siendo un método muy innovador en comparación con el método tradicional llamado método global, también conocido como "Look and Say", en el que los niños y niñas aprender a leer palabras completas (en España esto lo hacemos actualmente, enseñándoles una flashcard con una palabra completa que deben memorizar y reconocer de forma visual posteriormente en un ejercicio, por ejemplo). Se empieza enseñando las letras aisladas y el sonido que cada letra representa. Aprendizaje de los sonidos: Los niños y niñas aprenden los 42 sonidos o fonemas principales.

Free Lesson Plans Lesson Plans for Teaching Letter Sounds: I refer to the lessons as 'steps' because that is what they are. Each, little step builds on previous sounds and decodable phonics words already learnt. By teaching the steps in the order given, you can be confident that you,are covering all the necessary phonics sounds to build confident readers. The order of letter sounds being taught is recommended by Jolly Phonics. A suggested 10-15 minute weekly lesson plan is included. This is not intended to be a full phonics programme, but as a supplement to be used with other reading resources. Step/Lesson Plan 1. Aim: To learn the letter sounds: s, a ,t, i ,p, n and to decode words that contain these letters.

Brain Section Multitasks, Handling Phonetics and Decision-Making | News from Brown Scientists from Brown University and the University of Cincinnati found that a portion of the brain that handles decision-making also helps decipher different sounds. Details are in the July issue of the journal Psychological Science. PROVIDENCE, R.I. [Brown University] — A front portion of the brain that handles tasks like decision-making also helps decipher different phonetic sounds, according to new Brown University research. This section of the brain — the left inferior frontal sulcus — treats different pronunciations of the same speech sound (such as a ‘d’ sound) the same way. In determining this, scientists have solved a mystery. Subtle differencesMRI studies showed that test subjects reacted to different sounds — ta and da, for example — but appeared to recognize the same sound even when pronounced with slight variations. Sheila Blumstein, the study’s principal investigator, said the findings provide a window into how the brain processes speech.
