Snakes

Jolly Phonics Readers are fully decodable books for new readers The text in these Green Level Books (third level) uses only decodable regular words (words that use the letter-sound knowledge taught so far: the 42 letter main letter sounds, the alternative sound of ‹y› at the end of words like happy and sunny and the ‘hop-over ‹e›’ spellings of the long vowel sounds) and a small number of ‘tricky’ words (frequently used words that are not fully decodable at this stage).

All the tricky words and letter sounds used in this book are shown on the front inside cover; these can be used as a quick practice activity before starting the book.

Faint type is used for any silent letters, like the ‹b› in ‘lamb’.

Comprehension questions and discussion topics are included at the end of each story. These ensure that children are not only able to read the text, but also find meaning in the stories.
