Jolly Phonics Review and Refresher Session
This session refers to the Jolly Phonics Fidelity Checklist as a basis to review the implementation and current use of the program at your site. It may include revising some of the basic principles of the Jolly Phonics program to ensure a consistent understanding and approach amongst staff to ensure the highest results can be achieved. A question and answer time is incorporated into the session to discuss topics such as classroom organization, examine resources, assessment tools and to clarify areas of concern for your site.
This workshop can also be modified to incorporate 1:1 reviews and coaching sessions with individual teachers or small groups.
Jolly Grammar Training
Jolly Grammar builds upon the skills taught in Jolly Phonics. The program provides a systematic and sequential approach to teaching Spelling and Grammar for Years One to Six.
Due to the range of year levels and extensive content involved in the Jolly Grammar program, our workshops have been deliberately structured to focus on the Spelling and Grammar elements separately to ensure a greater depth of understanding for participants.
Training in Jolly Phonics is a pre-requisite to this program.

A synthetic phonics approach to teaching reading and spelling
Consonants, vowels, alternative spellings of the vowel sounds, syllables, schwa, prefixes, suffixes, base words and word origins

Session 4: Jolly Grammar – Grammar

Practical ideas and experiences to compliment the teaching grammar across year levels.
"Today's session had a profound impact on me because of you, Fiona. Some of the learning was re-affirming what I already do, but it helped solidified my understanding (in a way that was easy to understand) and gave me lots of pedagogical ideas and resources. I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to engage in this training and I have left feeling very inspired"
