Play Roly 5

LEARN THE ALPHABETIC PRINCIPLE

What you’ll need 

A device to play Play Roly videos, your Roly-ball, your mini Roly-ball, and your book or pages from earlier Play Roly activities.

 

How to play

  • Sit on the floor with your book or pages, Roly-ball, and mini Roly-ball
  • Write that day’s words in your child’s book or on a blank page
  • Play the first Play Roly 5 video, roll your Roly-ball back and forth, and learn the second part of the Play Roly song
  • When the three-letter sounds are sung, invite your child to roll the mini Roly-ball across the letters in the book as he/she sings the letter sounds 
  • Ask your child what the letter sounds say? The letters speak just like Roly!
  • Complete all six videos, one daily
  • If your child is having difficulty blending, we recommend you return to Play Roly 1 videos for more practice
  •  

What to expect

In Play Roly 5, we introduce new letter sounds and words to your child. We expect some children to return to Play Roly 1 to gain extra practice. Don’t worry if this happens, your child is building confidence ready to become a reader.

Got questions?

Go through all the videos in Play Roly 5.

Do not be concerned. Try going back to the beginning of the Play Roly 1 videos to ensure your child can blend verbally. If he/she can, pause the video in Play Roly 5 when it asks the child what the letters say. While the video is paused, sing the sounds again with your child, encouraging him/her to watch your lips and sing the way Roly sings. You can repeat several times. Your child may go through Play Roly 5 and 6 videos a few times before really understanding how to sound out letters to read words.

Move to Play Roly 6 when your child easily and consistently understands what the letters are saying or when you have played all the Play Roly 5 videos.

Hear from a happy Mom
My five-year old) daughter read me her first book the other day! Play Roly was a huge help to her. She could remember letter sounds easily, but she struggled to blend them together. Now when she gets stuck on a word, she will sing the word, as if playing with Roly, to figure it out. I also have a three-year-old daughter. I found it's a great game to do with the kids together, as they both enjoy singing the song and playing the game.
