Monster Phonics uses grapheme-phoneme correspondence as the first and foremost approach. Teaching is supported by using colour and monster sound cues to make the grapheme-phoneme correspondence explicit and easier to learn. Directly linking each grapheme and sounds within words makes learning easier and fun. Once a grapheme has been taught, the colour is removed. Not only does this accelerate the learning of phonics, high-frequency words, including common exception words, are also easier to learn.
Monster Phonics improves progress for all learners. This is because colour-coding makes learning phonics more memorable. Monster Phonics is a DfE validated scheme and is used across the UK and internationally.
Monster Phonics is easier to learn and remember. Monster Phonics helps children to learn and recall spellings by using colour. Each sound and colour is also represented by a monster that makes that sound (a sound cue). This brings phonics to life and makes Monster Phonics highly engaging.
Monster phonics can be supported at home. Please read the information in the parent letters below to find out how to use this.
