Why does Monster Phonics improve learning?
Monster Phonics is a highly-engaging, structured, synthetic phonics programme. It accelerates learning by allowing children to learn new graphemes by using monsters to group graphemes for recall and to provide an easy and fun memory cue for children. It also uses colour-coding to highlight the grapheme when teaching a new grapheme. Once taught and secure, the colour is removed. Multisensory focused teaching improves learning. Children love Monster Phonics. The high engagement and interest created by the programme further supports learning.
Has your scheme been validated by the Department for Education?
We are submitting for validation in the current round of DfE validation
at the end of October.
Does this programme follow the National Curriculum?
Yes, lesson plans and resources are available for every grapheme and spelling rule taught in Reception and the Key Stage 1 National Curriculum.
Does your scheme follow the same order as Letters and Sounds?
The graphemes are taught in the same order as letters and sounds in Reception. This order of teaching maximises opportunities for children to read and write words right from the start when learning phonics. The High Frequency Words and Common Exception Words follow a slightly different order so that they meet the requirements of the National Curriculum and to ensure that children have learnt all the first 100 HFWs and the next 200 HFWs by the end of Y2
Can I try Monster Phonics with my class?
Yes, you can. We recommend all the teachers to sign up for the 15 days free trial
to access the planning and resources without any commitments.
