Colour By Number

You can do this as a colour by number, but I like to make it a bit more interesting. I print these 1/4 the size, to fit four on a page. Then I ask the students to pair up and choose one of the designs. In pairs they take turns rolling the dice. If they role a number that hasn’t been competed, they colour in that section (not all the numbers). Who ever finishes the colouring first wins. Before they start I like them to colour in the numbers in the key first, to make sure they are reading the colour words correctly.


Digraph Reading & Identification Test

After we had finished Jolly Phonics 1, I wanted to see if my students recognised all the digraphs. I wrote two sets of words that contained all the digraphs that we learnt. I asked the students to look at the word, underline the digraph, sound the digraph and then read the word.

Jolly Phonics Take Home Book

I have created this Jolly Phonics book from the original Jolly Phonics Graphics. It allows the students to take what they have learnt home to share with their parents/guardians. The book graphic shows the action for the sound. The writing space shows their first attempt at writing the sound. The blank page on the right side is space where they glue in the sound. This then becomes a sound flash card book.

Stick In Sound Cards

So all you need to do is print the ‘Jolly Book’ double sided, put a ‘Jolly Cover’ on the front (the ‘s’ side – ‘j’ is the middle of the book) then staple. I have made the book so it follows the sound introductions as per the program. You get two books per A4 print.
