UK Certified Teachers Training Course in Jolly Grammar
Jolly Grammar is the next stage after Jolly Phonics. It teaches the structured side of literacy, so more than just grammar alone.
How does Jolly Grammar work?
By teaching key essential grammar rules, it helps children bring diversity to their writing and improve their spelling in a structured way.
Jolly Grammar teaches a wide range of language forms including the parts of speech, plurals, punctuation, and the tenses past, present, and future. It also teaches a wide range of spelling rules, including defining aspects such as the short vowels.
Jolly Grammar uses colors and actions to help children identify parts of speech in sentences, for example verbs are red and nouns are black. Filled with great ideas and fun ways to remember some of the rules, Jolly Grammar provides teachers with a systematic way to teach grammar, spelling and punctuation.
