Jolly Phonics

Our Jolly Phonics letter of the week is "F" The action for the letter "F" sound is to place one hand above the other, and lower the top hand as if an inflatable fish is deflating, and say f,f,f,f,f,f. Below I have attached a new video that shows the Jolly Phonics workbook pages the students will do in Kindergarten and what sound each letter makes. Towards the end it adds some blends and sounds that they will learn more in Kindergarten.
