I started JP last year in January. It went well, although my childrne needed a slower pace. I only used the Phonics and Patterned Stories of the ORT and not the truck series... well, only the "First Words" ones but when they had the character's names... not books like "The Pancake", which is pure guessing.

I think books like The Pancake are perfectly legitimate for the children to read because although they may not be able to decode the words they are able to use initial sounds and picture clues to help them and these are both skills they need too. Having said that I am also a fan of phonic schemes :D

Play, while it cannot change the external realities of children’s lives, can be a vehicle for children to explore and enjoy their differences and similarities and to create, even for a brief time, a more just world where everyone is an equal and valued participant.

Have just been on the Jelly and Bean site does anyone use these books and what do you think?

How did he do it? I am interested in this since I also believe that each child has his/her individual needs and maybe a particular method might not suit him/her... so I am open to hear about your own experiences. Thanks in advance :) !

Gosh .... I'm not reception or KS1 (just pre-school FS), but I have opinions (parent-type opinions).
Do you want these sorts of opinions?
