Buk bilong Pikinini aims to foster a love for reading among children that will hopefully last a lifetime. In order to do this, we need to
make the learning process fun and exciting. Jolly Phonics is now going to help us to achieve this. The Jolly Phonics course is designed to be visual, tactile, and aural, so children are applying all their senses in developing their literacy skills. It also ties in nicely with Buk bilong Pikinini's syllabus.
Our librarians follow a structured program that includes guided reading, writing, arts and crafts activities and much more. Similarly, the Jolly Phonics programme employs readers, writing exercises, arts and crafts ideas, and other fun games and activities to teach children the basics of
reading, writing and speaking. The Jolly Phonics programme complements our specially adapted syllabus and helps us work towards our goal of getting children reading!
Children at the Buk bilong Pikinini libraries, here in Lae, are learning with Jolly Phonics.
