Jolly Grammar 2 - Building On
2-3 Hours PD
Building on the concepts introduced in Jolly Grammar 1, teachers are introduced to the new spelling and grammar component of the Jolly Grammar 2 program. Learn how to ‘dot, dash and dive’ as well as ‘phoneme finger count’ the phonemes in the spelling lists. Discover the advanced phonetic code of English which in turn will assist teachers and students with making sense of common spelling rules. Explore exciting ways for teaching grammar through a multi-sensory approach. The grammatical concepts of prepositions, conjunctions, parsing, contractions, verb tenses etc. are just some of the extra skills introduced. We will demonstrate how to adapt the Jolly Grammar programs to suit an Australian classroom setting and show how unnecessary worksheets may be avoided.
