Phonics Is Key To Reading And More!

Help me give my students the best chance at being successful with our Jolly Phonics Program. The Jolly dictionaries will allow my students the opportunity to look up words they are unfamiliar with.

My Students

My students work hard and are willing to try! This is the reason that I try to make their learning as fun as I can. Our school has recently adopted the Jolly Phonics Learning Curriculum. This is an amazing program that gets kids moving while learning. However, this is only part of the program. In order to make this program as successful for my students as possible their are some resources that our class needs. We will need student workbooks, teacher workbooks, big books, songs, and access to software learning games.

This program has shown tremendous growth in the students that use it.

This is why I am requesting materials to make this program the most successful for my students. I not only want my students to be successful but to love learning!

My Project

The Jolly dictionaries will be used to teach my students vocabulary. They will also be used to teach ABC order as well as spelling. I will use the student workbooks to help my students become familiar with our Jolly Phonics program. These workbooks will give my students the practice they need to be successful with our Jolly Phonics Curriculum and show them learning can be fun.

By using these products I will be able to help my students become the best readers and writers that they can be.

My students love to learn and I am excited to make their learning fun and enjoyable.
