Australian International School, Bangkok - Sukhumvit Soi 31 campus
Representatives from different International schools in Bangkok and as far-off Rayong, three AISB parents, and an owner of a Language school ( 25 participants in total).
Saturday 14th November was a historic day in Australian International School, Bangkok.
AISB hosted a Jolly Phonics Introductory workshop for the very first time, inviting teachers from other schools to attend.
The day started with participants being given an information pack and via videos, music, movement, games and activities the participants learnt about the Jolly Phonics program and how to implement it in a fun and engaging way.
Drama games and phonics were linked with short/ fun activities such as Biddy, Biddy. Bop, Zip . Zap. Zop and ( the blended version…blip, blap, blop).
The participants were shown how to use small whiteboards to get the best out of the children being taught.
They learnt all the Jolly Phonics songs and actions and worked together on an interactive summation of the day’s learning.
It was a busy day, punctuated with a 50-minute power cut that we managed to negotiate.
All in all a happy and fruitful day of learning about the most used Phonics Program on the planet.
