What type on phonics program do most of you use? Do you have workbooks or how do you teach it?

I have started using Jolly Phonics this year and it has been fantastic. My class are exceeding my expectations in reading and writing. Google jolly phonics and check out jollylearning.com. The resources are great and it is so easy to use- each sound has an action which my class love.

I can't believe I've finally heard of someone else who uses Jolly Phonics! Hurray! I've taught first grade for 20 years, and have tried a variety of phonics programs. Jolly Phonics is by far the best, in my opinion. You don't have to buy all the components, and it's not very expensive. If you buy the teacher guide, that in itself can get you far. A colleague and I wrote a mini grant for the supplies, and we got all of it. But you don't need to have it all. I would definitely get the big book and CD with the songs for each letter sound. What I like about this program is that it's very developmental, very sequential, and it MAKES SENSE. Let me know if you have any more questions, and good luck!

Resources for JP

I bought the Phonics guide and Grammar guides. Our school also purchased the starter kit most of which we use everyday.
Things I love-
The Big Books (Finger Phonics)
The Flashcards
Tricky word flowers
Puppets- so much fun

The Phonics guides have lots of reproducible handouts. We blow the up and laminate them to create group activities.

The program has had such a positive impact on the reading and writing levels of my kindergarten class and our year 1/2 and 3 students also do the program (Grammar 1 and 2). We are all having great success.

BTW- I bought lots of my resources on ebay- and saved a bit of cash.

Summertime- love your avatar! No David is a huge hit in my class. My 5/6 class loved it last year too which was funny.

Does anyone use the Spalding phonics...if you do, do you start it immediately by the second week of school? And how often do you do throughout the week.

I normally do it everymorning w/students during morning meeting and then each day I introduce 3 new ones, on thursdays we do a practice quiz and fridays it counts for a grade once we have at least 15.

Does anyone use the Fountas & Pinnell phonics program? We might be getting this and I was just curious as to how it was working out if you use it. Thanks!

This program looks awesome! You're right dswan I probably won't need to purchase the entire program. I'm surprised they provide so much information for free! But I'm not complaining too much I can't wait to use the techniques.

Jolly Phonics Purchase?

bdateach--Are you going to purchase the big book and the manual? I never looked online at what they "give" you. Definitely get the manual because it gives you a lot of information on how the whole program should proceed. Good luck!
