District 6 Introduces Jolly Phonics

Kindergarten PLC Team

Zion District 6 Kindergarten PLC (Professional Learning Community) recently celebrated the addition of Jolly Phonics to their curriculum! After looking at the team's data across the district, it became apparent that there was a gap in "Foundational Skills" scores, which carried over and had a ripple effect into 2nd Grade. A subcommittee of the PLC researched the different phonics curriculums that are research-based, and THE WINNER WAS ... Jolly Phonics! If you stop by any Kindergarten classroom you will likely see some singing and "dancing" going on. This singing and dancing helps students to build muscle memory as they conquer those alphabet letters and sounds! The Kinder team set a SMART goal that 80% of their students will master all letters and sounds by the end of K! The Kindergarten PLC would like to extend a huge thank you to Teaching & Learning for their support in piloting this curriculum!
