Jolly Jingles Arlene Grierson Illustrated by Lib Stephen

The Jolly Jingles provide a connected reading experience to reinforce the 42 letter sounds introduced in Jolly Phonics. Exposing beginning readers to each of the letter-sound relationships in written examples enables teachers to create a multi-level learning experience. While some students are focusing on the sounds, others are able to work on reading the words of the Jingles. The Jingles combine music with the multisensory approach used in The Phonics Handbook and Student Books. They can be sung with the CD or read to the class. The tune for each Jingle is given at the bottom of the page. Some suggestions for using the Jolly Jingles: Sounds Each Jingle focuses on a specific letter sound. Once the class has read through a Jingle, hunt for the targeted sound together. The students can do the action for the sound each time it is heard and note its position in each word. Once all of the letter sounds have been introduced, alternative spellings of the vowel sounds can be reviewed with the Jingles. The alternative spellings of the /ai/ vowel sound, for example, are “ay” and “a_e.” Actions The action for each sound is given on the appropriate page. As well as using this action each time they say the sound in a Jingle, the students can act out the words they are singing. For example, when singing The Captain, which is the Jingle for the /ie/ sound, the students can begin by mimicking the captain’s walk, moving their arms at their sides as if they are marching; on the second line, the students can wave to each other; finally, during the last lines of the Jingle, they can stand to attention and salute. Print Concepts Repeated reading of the Jolly Jingles provides students with opportunities to observe key features of print. Help them to develop an understanding of tracking print (from left to right and top to bottom), and one-to-one word correspondence, by pointing to the words of the Jingles as they are read and sung. Once the students know a Jingle, have them match paper strips containing words, phrases, and/or sentences from a Jingle to this book. Looking at the text with the students also allows the teacher to point out examples of tricky words or spelling patterns covered recently. Phonemic Awareness The use of rhyme and alliteration in the Jolly Jingles provides opportunities to play with sounds and develop phonemic awareness. Emphasize and exaggerate the rhymes and alliteration as you read and sing the Jingles. Once the students have learned the words to a rhyming Jingle, play games such as thinking of rhyming words which could be substituted for those in the Jingle. Magic Letters Vowels are the most difficult sounds for students to learn. The Magic Letters Jingle uses the letter names rather than the sounds to help students become familiar with the vowels and helps them remember that there must be a vowel sound in every word. Introduce the Magic Letters Jingle early in the year and sing it regularly.

The Jolly Jingles are an enjoyable way to reinforce students’ knowledge of the letter sounds In this book, and on the accompanying CD, is a Jingle for each of the main letter sounds used in English, in the same order as they are taught in Jolly Phonics. The Jingles support the learning of the letter sounds in a fun and interactive way, reinforcing each letter sound as it is taught, and providing review throughout the year. On each page is an illustrated Jingle, the name of the tune, and the action for the sound(s). The Jingles are sung by students at College Street Public School, Smithville, Ontario, Canada with musical accompaniment by their teacher, Sandra McIntyre.

Outstanding results are achieved with Jolly Phonics around the world.
