Jolly Phonics Student Book 2 (in print letters)


This is the second of two write-in books that provide lesson activities for young students in their first year of learning to read and write. The teaching is divided into three steps and is supported by step-by-step lesson plans and comprehensive guidance in the Jolly Phonics Teacher’s Book. Student Book 2 covers Step 2 Units 7 to 13 and all of Step 3.

The weekly units in Steps 2 and 3

  • Build and consolidate the reading and writing skills taught in Step 1 through the key topics of Alternatives, Handwriting, Tricky Words, and Words and Sentences.
  • Introduce and review the main alternative vowel spellings, capital letters, alphabet and new tricky words. Step 3 introduces ‹ph›, soft ‹c›, soft ‹g›, and the /air/ spellings.
  • Offer a variety of guided writing, dictation, and reading com- prehension activities that introduce basic sentence structure and reading for meaning.

In this new edition, there are two Student Books, one for each semester. The transitions from Steps 1 to 3 are clearly signposted with a welcome page at the beginning of each step and a reward on completion. The front cover displays a new logo indicating that Jolly Phonics is aligned with both the Science of Reading and the Science of Writing, as the program provides explicit teaching of phonemic awareness, alongside systematic phonics and writing instruction, with a focus on improving fluency, vocabulary acquisition, and reading comprehension.
