Phonics - Can Anyone Help?


Recommended Posts

Hi all, I use the Jolly Phonics as a basis for my planning, but just wondered if you have any more creative ways of teaching phonics? I have rhymes, finger puppets, letter fans and we also make lots of cutting and pasting activities - but none of these are very exciting for the children.


We have a class of 36 reception children altogether - 24 in one room and 12 in my room. My 12 are joined by 4 Y1s who need more practical experiences!


I've only been teaching reception since January and as I have the smaller group of children who need much more repetition, I'm running out of ideas.


Any thoughts?


Thanks everyone,
