About Monster Phonics

Simple and unique – lesson plans make teaching easier

DfE-listed, MP is designed as a whole-class scheme for children in Reception and Key Stage 1 and as intervention in KS1 and 2. The resources are mapped to the National Curriculum for ease.



The colour-coded grapheme system is unique to Monster Phonics; each coloured grapheme is paired with a carefully chosen monster character to give audio-visual prompts that help children ‘see’ each sound within a word and pronounce it correctly. This approach also means Monster Phonics supports dyslexic and EAL learners, enabling teachers to create an inclusive learning environment where no child is left behind.

The programme supports dyslexic learners as well as children learning English more than any other scheme available.

 Monster Phonics consistently colour-codes for the stumbling blocks in reading, specifically the vowels sounds, silent letters and tricky letters which do not show phoneme-grapheme correspondence. Children find it so easy to spell with Monster Phonics and words are more memorable.

All teaching is multisensory. Each resource only uses the most common words for every spelling, to make learning relevant. The use of consistent colour-coding for specific phonemes allows media such as pastels, paints and pens to be used as well as materials such as playdough to create 3D and 2D representations of sounds. Monster Phonics colour-coded magnetic letters can also build words. Songs, games and Apps add to this multisensory diet.
