Selangor: Jolly Phonics is a fun and child-centred approach to teaching. In the Bubbles class, the 3-year-old children were given the opportunity to learn to make egg sandwiches during the lesson aimed at learning the sound of the letter 'e'. At the beginning, the teacher gathered the children around the table and told them the story of the letter 'e' by using the Jolly Phonics Big Book.

Before starting the cookery, children were required to put on their aprons and wash their hands to make sure they were clean. The children enjoyed peeling the eggshells, smashing and stirring the eggs using forks and spreading the eggs on the bread. During snack time, children enjoyed their tasty egg sandwiches along with their peers and teachers. They also learned to sing the Jolly Phonics song of the letter 'e'.

Throughout the lesson, children learned about the letter sound 'e' and the corresponding words, practised the fine motor skills of hand movement and dexterity, and also developed social skills by helping others and being cooperative. Most of all, they had great fun!
