What do you get when you mix Jolly Phonics with Montessori???? Jolly Montessori! :) Okay only kidding! But here is a lapbook I put together using the Jolly Phonics method of learning letters, and combined that with Montessori techniques to practise.
This is the first lapbook following the JP series, so I hope to complete and upload them as I go along teaching my 4 year old inshallah.
The Montessori moveable alphabet uses red for consonants and blue for vowels, however I purchased from Learning Resources something pretty similar (as was alot cheaper...altho the Montessori letters do look way better and easier to use in their box) but the colours are reversed.
The lapbook is available to download inshallah with 2 options:
1) with consonants in blue and vowels in red HERE!!!!!
2) with consonants in red and vowels in blue (as used in Montessori) HERE!!!!
Front cover (here cut into 2 parts to open up)
Each letter mini book opens out to show 3 different nouns beginning with that letter, as well as a letter tracing page to practise writing.
Same as previous pic above.
Activity page which includes colouring, letter matching, sounding out words and pencil control practise.
Once the lapbook was completed, we used the sounding out words on the activity page with the movable alphabet. My 4 year old copied the words and we sounded them out together to try to read.

(excuse the capital "S"'s....I swapped them over for the small letters after pic taken!!!!)
