jolly toddlers (4 hours).

pre-literacy skills with the nursery stages (2-4 year olds)

This practical-based, exciting new course focuses on introducing literacy skills with Very Young Learners from 2-4 years of age and serves as a prelude to the Jolly Phonics method or alternative synthetic phonics programmes.
Through the use of topics, language play, songs, art and role-play, it is possible for Very Young Learners to become aware of how sounds are linked to letters and words, creating positive reading and writing experiences from the earliest stages in preschool. Exposure to the English language using a natural and fun approach also helps to develop and reinforce skills such as pronunciation, vocabulary, language comprehension and acquisition essential for ESL-learners.
The Fun Phonics Pre-reading Framework is an informal framework or bank of practical ideas and activities that can be used at home by parents or at school by teachers. It covers the introduction of basic literacy concepts to Very Young Learners (2-4 year olds) using a multi-sensory approach to teaching through everyday, simple classroom activities.
Ideal for educators of the Nursery stages.
