Monster Phonics



Monster Phonics is an intervention program that is taught within school to support children with their knowledge of phonics. Monster Phonics includes stories, songs and activities which are carefully woven into the lessons which are highly engaging for the children. Colour-coded flashcards, word charts and PowerPoints make the teaching of the Commons Exception and High-Frequency Words far easier. Monster Phonics includes a colour-coded grapheme system which is unique to Monster Phonics; each coloured grapheme is paired with a monster character that makes the same sound to give audio-visual prompts that help children ‘see’ each sound within a word and pronounce it correctly. The monsters are really sound cues to help children remember how to read and pronounce graphemes.


It is taught on a daily basis for 30 minutes with carefully selected children who need additional reading support.
