Happy Mothers’ Day to all you fabulous mamas!

It’s hard to believe that 11 years have passed since I first became a mother. Over the years, I’ve rejoiced and sweated, laughed and cried over this amazing vocation that has transformed my life in so many ways. Children have taught me the meaning of joy, sacrifice, and perseverance in unique ways – and there is still so much for me to learn. Thank you, kids!

So many amazing women have been a part of my mothering journey. Old friends, neighbours, blog readers, and acquaintances in the flesh who have become closer friends through the commonality we share – we are mothers.

Today I’d like to express appreciation to a specific group of mothers who have motivated me to keep on doing what I do – teaching our children at home. It all started with a friend who asked me what I was doing to help my children read and write – and Phonics@Home was born.

Phonics@Home is a four-hour workshop that equips parents with basic knowledge and practical skills of how to teach their children using the highly effective early literacy programme, Jolly Phonics. It is a small-group workshop, limited to six participants, so that everyone gets to ask questions, engage in role-playing sessions with personal feedback from me, and participate in hands-on games and activities related to phonics learning. Participants leave with a take-home Parent Kit containing the Jolly Songs CD and useful activity tools to reinforce learning at home.

In our private Facebook group exclusively for post-workshop participants, everyone is invited to share stories about how Jolly Phonics is working for them, or ask a question that might benefit the others. I also share updates of how we continue using Jolly Phonics in our own home and fresh learning ideas that emerge as we do so.

After 14 workshops in the past one year (wow!), I’m truly glad for the privilege of sharing my knowledge and experience about this fantastic resource, Jolly Phonics. I’ve met amazing mothers, also teachers, who are passionate about their children’s development and want to journey with their children as they learn.

Now, in conjunction with Mothers’ Day, I’m giving away one set of Jolly Phonics Picture Flashcards.

  3. Glad to join your class Jin Ai! I have learned so much during the session. Thanks for all your sharing on what u know. Help me a lot on guiding my gals. From zero knowledge of phonic to confident in teaching them.
    Looking forward to join your future classes. Tq

  4. Phonics @home workshop- totally help me a lot to understand more on how to start from basic & wish to help them to build strong foundation on reading. This workshop had taught me from step to step. The most important things is Jin Ai is a very good mentor to me, she never give me up whenever I need her advice. She provide a very good service after the workshop. Love her much & thanks to be there for me whenever I need you.

I certainly love her passion for sharing generously and doing what she is good at. And it has helped me a lot in guiding my child at home. Bravo to you Jin Ai and keep up the good work.

  6. I never expected Phonics can be SO fun! I’m benefited a lot from this workshop as I’d have plenty of ideas to teach the children now. Thanks Jin AI.

  9. Never learn phonics before. Enjoy the fun of singing along the jolly phonics songs and action with kids. Thumbs up for this workshop!

  10. I’m glad I learned about Jolly Phonics through you. Think Caitlyn was less than 1 year old when I participated in the workshop and I couldn’t wait to start it with her. Thought she was too young so I just sang the songs to her and tell stories using the books. To my amazement, she caught onto making the vowel sounds and actions. Today, I asked her to point to which was “s”, “t” and she pointed to the correct sounds! So sometimes I think she’s not paying attention…truth is, we never know when they are and how much they’ll absorb 🙂

  11. I’ve had some exposure to Phonics, bits and bobs with my older child. Now, through Jin Ai’s passion in sharing her knowledge through Phonics@Home I have a better understanding and structure to teaching it to my younger child. It’s so good to feel supported and encouraged when we feel stuck. Jin Ai’s dedication and vision to help parents be part of their child’s development in reading has been a blessing to many of us. Thank you, dear!

  12. The Phonics class has transformed my mindset since then. It increase my interest to learn along side with my son. We enjoy the songs and stories together. Usually when we are driving… we will playb the CD, sing a long and make up all kinds of stories.
    Almost everyone i met, if i hear them talk about phonics. I will vonlunteer to share Jin Ai contact. Hee…. life changing experience.

  13. I enjoy phonics@home !Now I have learned what my girl learning in her school and i can practise with her at home. Now we have more activities to do at home, over the weekend and even when we are out. Thanks Jin Ai for all the great ideas. Now even my 1.5yo girl can make the sound when she hear us sing the ‘s’ and ‘m’ song 🙂

  14. So much to learn from the workshop… Very informative and comprehensive. The best thing is Jin Ai is able to show us the fun way teaching children phonics.

    As a mom, I let my child learn at his own pace. It’s not so stressful for the child and myself.

    Thanks to Bernice for recommending me to attend this program.
